The Young Vermeer

  • 8th December 2010 − 13th March 2011 | Scottish National Gallery (Scottish National Gallery) | Admission free


The Young Vermeer brings together the three earliest paintings by the master for the first time since they all have undergone conservation treatment. It has brought to light Vermeer’s exceptionally bright colours and his subtle handling of light and shade. Moreover, technical research has considerably added to our knowledge about Vermeer’s technique and the genesis and history of the individual artworks.
