Vermeer Boxed Notecards

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.
