A Classic Baroque Painting of a man in his study, artwork that has passed into the public domain and makes wonderful gifts and other products.
One of Vermeer's few paintings showing only a male figure, this is the same model and setting as his The Astronomer.
Johannes (or Jan, or Johan) Vermeer was a Dutch Baroque painter who is known for his distinctive palette of blue and yellow. Van Gogh was influenced and quite intrigued by Vermeer, calling him a "strange painter" whose palette "consists of blue, cornflower yellow , pearl grey, black and white." Vermeer's work typically shows portraits and scenes from domestic life, and he has gone from obscurity to becoming one of the most admired painters of his era.
