A View of Delft

Author(s): Anthony Bailey

Biographies & Memoirs

Vermeer has always been considered the most elusive of great artists, but this work tracks him down in his home town. It takes the reader back to 17th-century Delft, and gives a portrait of Vermeer, the Protestant who married a prosperous Catholic girl and had 15 children.
