    Jan Johannes Vermeer: Girl with a Pearl Earring 1665. His use of light and contrast is still mesmerizing. That pearl is just the perfect touch in what would have been a very dark area. The way she is looking at you--drawing you in--that is classic baroque art.

Vermeer Still Life Vermeer never painted a still life as such, but many of his interiors included them. A white jug like this appears in a 3 of his 37 paintings, a maid asleep, the girl with a wineglass and the music lesson. These images include seduction and inebriation, those were very prudish times.I have had great difficulty finding a pure white delft jug, but I managed to finally get one, with a little help from a can of spray paint.

Vermeer--You can feel the quiet surrounding this woman, it seems as if she is performing a sacred ritual instead of a domestic chore.
