Johannes Vermeer and his Dutch contemporaries Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch and Frans van Mieris liked to depict refined scenes from everyday life. Thanks to the interaction and rivalry between these artists, they developed a pictorial typology that was characteristic of the 17th century.
From 22 February to 22 May the Louvre Museum is presenting an exhibition on Johannes Vermeer, the leader among these artists, including his greatest masterpieces and many of the paintings produced by his contemporaries. The exhibition traces the process of artistic emulation that fostered the painter’s excellence.
