In the history of art, there has perhaps been no artist better at creating purity of light and form than Johannes Vermeer. His special ability to create light in paintings caused the Dutch painter to rise to fame, but not until long after his death. Today, only 36 of his works of art remain. This causes art lovers the world over to treasure them all the more. Indeed, the golden touch of Dutch Golden-Age artist Johannes Vermeer is evident in his surviving works of art.
