Vermeer's Family Secrets

A Lasting Impression

Vermeer's Family Secrets

— Bettmann/Corbis

At the time of his death, Johannes Vermeer’s family was left bereft and in debt.  It was only much later that the 17th century artist came to be considered one of the greatest painters of all time, and his works were recognized as the crowning achievement of the Dutch Golden Age.

Benjamin Binstock, specialist in Northern Renaissance and Baroque Art, offers a daring new account of Vermeer’s art and life in his latest book: “Vermeer's Family Secrets: Genius, Discovery, and the Unknown Apprentice.”
