Johannes Vermeer (Dutch, 1632–1675) was born in the thriving city of Delft and lived there all his life. The circumstances of his art training are unclear. In 1641 his father, a prosperous weaver and art dealer, purchased a large house with an inn. Vermeer inherited the inn and the art business when his father died in 1652. In 1653, at the age of twenty-one, he registered as a master painter in Saint Luke’s Guild.
