In recent times, Johannes Vermeer's status as a great artist has been assured and his paintings are more popular today than ever before. Little is known of his life other than he painted very few paintings and that he died penniless. A master of light and color, Vermeer excelled in creating the illusion of reality in his paintings. Most of Vermeer's work follows a similar theme, often featuring a single female figure standing or sitting in a domestic setting engaged in a simple everyday activity such as reading a letter or playing a musical instrument. There is no incident or drama here, yet Vermeer's genius is his ability to transform a placid everyday event into an episode littered with mystery and intrigue. Works featured in this program include View of Delft, Street in Delft, T he Milkmaid, Girl Asleep at a Table, Girl with a Pearl Earring, and The Art of Painting .
