VERMEER: THE COMPLETE WORKS. Karl Schutz. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2015. 258 pp. (3 foldout) with 197 ills. (195 col.). 41 x 30 cm. ISBN 9783836536417 In English.
Oversized. Publisher's description: His works have prompted a New York Times bestseller; a film starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth; record visitor numbers at art institutions from Amsterdam to Washington; and special crowd-control measures at the Mauritshuis, The Hague, where thousands flock to catch a glimpse of the enigmatic, wide-eyed, and enchanting Girl with a Pearl Earring, also known as the Dutch Mona Lisa. In his lifetime, however, the fame of Johannes Vermeer barely extended beyond his native Delft and a small circle of patrons. After his death, his name was largely forgotten, except by a few Dutch art collectors and dealers. Outside of Holland, his works were even misattributed to other artists. It was not until the mid 19th century, that Vermeer returned to the attention of the international art world, which suddenly looked upon his narrative minutiae, meticulous textural detail, and majestic planes of light, spotted a genius, and never looked back.
