Transcript of Johannes Vermeer

Girl With a Pearl Earring-1665
My Opinion
I think Johannes Vermeer does an outstanding job capturing scenes of 17th century life. His art is realistic and most of it seems to communicate a normal or happy mood. His art does a good job of using the elements of design to show a subject.

Artist Information
Johannes Vermeer was born October 31, 1632 in Delft, Netherlands.
His father was an art dealer and Vermeer took over when his father died.
He died December 15, 1675.
His art, painted in the Baroque movement, was quite unrecognized during his time but became popular for their realism when the photograph was invented.

The Art of Painting-1666/1667
Johannes Vermeer

This artwork has an obvious subject:
the girl. She is brighter than the black
background, and she looks very realistic.
I feel happy when I see this painting
because the girl is bright and smiling.
Vermeer used space in this painting; the
girl is positive space and the background is
negative space.
This painting shows a girl posing
for an artist, who is believed to be
Vermeer himself. Again, Vermeer
made the girl brighter than the rest
of the painting, and the room is
very detailed as well. I feel relaxed
looking at this painting because
the painting room looks quiet.
