ศิลปิน: Jan Vermeer
พิพิธภัณฑ์: Kunsthistorisches Museum (Vienna, Austria)
The Art of Painting has all the characteristics of Vermeer’s artistic genius, but, moreover, it stands apart from his other works, as it is the largest and more complex of all of them. In the painting we see a seventeenth-century Dutch interior illuminated by diffused light and exquisitely painted details. It is indeed believed that this painting was really important to Vermeer, because it remained in his possession until his death.
