Published by Xlibris
The poems of VERMEER IN WORDS explore the inner workings of the Dutch master’s exquisite paintings, both in order to articulate their aesthetic principles and to reveal some of their deeper intimations. For fuller context, the poems and paintings are interleaved with short passages describing 17th century Dutch history, art, and society. What emerges is a collection that celebrates Vermeer’s unique gifts while plumbing his personal predicament, values, and artistic achievements. Anyone who loves Vermeer will find the book a rich reading experience.
