Traces of Vermeer
The methods behind Vermeer's luminous interior paintings still remain something of a mystery to modern experts. Artist Jane Jelley takes us on a detective story in Traces of Vermeer, exploring the evidence behind the shifts in focus, blurred scenes, and other puzzling features of his work.
Vermeer left behind no letters, diaries or reports, and no preliminary drawings have been discovered for his masterpieces. Using authentic painting materials and techniques in her investigation, Jelley shows us how paintings are created layer by layer and uncovers new evidence for the artist's use of camera obscura.
Filled with unearthed secrets and old traveller's tales, this illuminating book gives us new insight into Vermeer's methods, and explains how the artist could have used a lens in his work.
