Dating all the way back to the Greeks of hundreds of years BC, we as a culture have information about all kinds of important figures throughout time. From Socrates to Plato, from Alexander to Caesar, even though some people lived thousands of years ago, their biographies are ours to command. Johannes Vermeer artwork is so famous but we still wonder. His interests lay in compositional and technical aspects of art, including, most famously, his preoccupation with light and lighting.
Lutes may be in short supply today, but guitars and other stringed instruments abound. Women still fuss at their toilette. Today we read emails on our phones, instead of having the tactile experience of holding a sheet of paper.
Dutch painters. Although both pose and composition of the Girl with a Pearl Earring are so natural as to go almost unnoticed, they are fundamental elements in achieving the expressive qualities desired by the artist.

Curated stories of home and away mingle with special focuses on Warhol, women and watercolours. Special exhibitions focusing on families with children, on Japan, and on contemporary figurative painters will also feature. One of the more unusual exhibitions promises to be Victorian watercolours. Now, to celebrate the impact of women artists on modern art, the Gallery will present Making modernism.
My favourite subject is the female face. Most of the portraits that I create are a mix of four to five different faces, mostly of different race and origin. On my computer I create a new, non existing person out of them.
After years in hiding, a nude cupid figure is being revealed thanks to painstakingly tedious restorative work. However, when researchers first saw the figure through the layers of paint concealing it thanks to x-ray technologies, they assumed the cupid was covered up by Vermeer. In recent years, though, researchers realized that the cupid might be a part of the painting as an image within an image.
