Vermeer has always been considered the most elusive of great artists, but this book tracks him down in his home town. In a compelling piece of historical writing, Bailey takes the reader back to 17th century Delft and presents a vivid portrait of the artist, describing his life and personality, the scientific expertise which lies behind the calm mystery of his paintings, and the growth of Vermeer's fame and influence.
