Born in the Netherlands in October 1632
His painting, Girl with a Pearl Earring
is something to behold
of its natural beauty
the whole world should be told.
A Vermeer masterpiece is what it is classed
Its natural beauty, will it ever be surpassed?
Johan Vermeer a natural talent by all accounts
Taking his work slowly at all times
Taking ultimate care
Never did get the deserved recognition while alive.
At the time of his passing
His family were barely able to survive.
Vermeer passed away on the 15th December 1675
The beauty of his paintings will keep his name alive.
What attracted me to this artists work?
abstract for me holds no attraction.
Of course everyone to their own
beauty as they say is in the eye of the beholder.
Vermeer captures this at all times
whether its The Girl with the Wine Glass
His thirty plus recognised paintings
each one a thing of beauty.
