Read full description of the books:
There is a dual meaning in the title. The Art of Painting is the title of one of Vermeer's masterpieces. This explores his techniques, and his development as an artist.
Even though Vermeer's work is very optical, the apparent reality is extremely manipulated, shadows and lights are where they need to be compositionally, and to highten the mood and theme. He used the camera obscura, but to research and create effects of focus. In later years he generalized a lot, but still keeping the optical appearance. Everything he did was very clever and under the radar as it were, appearing to be an exact transcription of reality, but actually far more deliberate than first appearances.
