Can you believe Johannes Vermeer was virtually unknown until the mid-19th century? Today he is one of the most renowned artists in the world. Pieter Roelofs, Head of Paintings and Sculpture, tells us why.
Today Vermeer is one of the world’s most beloved artists. His later work consists of intimate genre scenes, in which the main figure is engaged in everyday activities. The Rijksmuseum owns three of his domestic scenes and one cityscape, namely the world-famous Little Street.
