Vermeer: the sources of his painting - lectures
Silvia Danesi Squarzina
Professor Emeritus of Art History, University of Rome, La Sapienza
Proust wrote that Vermeer's pictures are fragments of one and the same world. But the artist's sources were actually multiple and ranged from everyday life to his mother-in-law's art collection, from Cesare Ripa's Iconologia - translated and published in Amsterdam in 1644 - to emblem literature.
