Taschen Publishes Overview of Vermeer’s Works

0 Comments on this event

Vermeer

Girl with Pearl Earring

Taschen has published a luxury edition overview of Johannes Vermeer’s works. The XL edition brings together the complete catalog of Vermeer’s work, presenting the calm yet compelling scenes so treasured in galleries across Europe and the United States into one monograph of utmost reproduction quality. With brand new photography of many works, Vermeer’s restrained but richly evocative repertoire of domestic actions – ranging from letter writing to music making to preparations in the kitchen – unfolds in a generous format, including three fold-out spreads. Numerous details emphasize the artist’s remarkable ability not only to bear witness to the trends and trimmings of the Dutch Golden Age but also to encapsulate an entire story in just one transient gesture, expression, or look.

After completing his studies of Art History and Archaeology at the University of Vienna, Karl Schütz joined the staff of the Gemäldegalerie of the city's Kunsthistorisches Museum, serving from 1972 as a curator and from 1990 to 2011 as its Director. His particular scholarly interests include Netherlandish and Flemish painting, early-16th-century German painting, courtly portraiture and the history of the Gemäldegalerie collection.
