Vermeer has always been one of my favorite paintersand this book is the most beautifully written analysis you could find on studies of Vermeerthis is not a book of factsso if u r trying to find how Vermeer used his paint what was his specific technique on a painting of his or what exactly was his story his family religion education etc this is not the book for ubut if u r just like mewho love and appreciate the beauty of Vermeer s work and who has no specific purpose on interpreting his intentionswho wholeheartedly love art and could therefore put aside those academic historical datas analysis..and who is concerned aesthetically about his work his stylethis is the most beautifully written one for u it s like poetry The author rambles on endlessly in what appears to be an attempt to impress the reader with complicated and cryptic prose It is the worst art book I ve ever purchased Save your money I had to buy this book for an art history class I am in and it possible the worst thing I have ever read for reference, I am an art history major and therefore have encounter many dry and boring art history books, so I m qualified to make the assertion that this books is quite horrendous Also, like someone else mentioned, it has barely any images and it refers to the paintings by their location i.e The Dublin painting not their actual titles, which would have made it a lot easier because most normal people haven t memorized the museum locations of all of Vermeer s works Another thing mentioned in another review is the author s repetitive wordiness which I have to agree with If you want a good book on Vermeer with all color images that is actually well written, I recommend Schnieder s complete works of Vermeer I actually enjoyed reading that one The author, Gowing, also is just terrible at explaining Vermeer s life and isn t even that accurate and the whole thing seems to be a test of how many times Gowing can use big words to sound smart Overall, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK Un buen libro para descubrir un gran pintor
