Description

Glass half dome paperweight with image by a famous master artist. Measures 3in diameter by 1.5inH. Comes in an elegant presentation box.

Although Vermeer is now considered, one of the greatest paintings of the Dutch Golden Age, very little is known about his life. Initially, Vermeer painted large history pieces as did many of his contemporaries. However, he soon focused on the interiors which would later make him famous. He was commissioned to create the latter by a select group of collectors. The works were expensive because Vermeer could paint no more than three of them per year. He was rapidly forgotten after his death, only to be rediscovered in the 19th century.
