Vermeer Centrum Delft information
As the place where Vermeer was born, lived, and worked, Delft is ‘Vermeer Central’ to many art-history and old-masters enthusiasts. Along with viewing life-sized images of Vermeer’s oeuvre, you can tour a replica of Vermeer’s studio, which reveals the way the artist approached the use of light and colour in his craft. A ‘Vermeer’s World’ exhibit offers insight into his environment and upbringing, while temporary exhibits show how his work continues to inspire other artists.
At 2pm on Friday and noon on Sunday, there's a free one-hour English-language tour.
