Vermeer’s Mania for Maps

October 9, 2016 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Event Navigation

17th-century Dutch artist Johannes (Jan) Vermeer’s detailed depictions of maps and globes coincide with the great age of exploration and mapmaking. These cartographic objects, and the ways in which
Vermeer used them, not only add further meaning to the allegorical subjects and scenes of everyday life in Vermeer’s paintings; they also shed light on the artist’s working methods, including his possible use of the camera obscura.
