Scenes of domestic life and luminous color make Vermeer's art both accessible and irresistible. Designed and written to appeal to young readers, this engaging introduction to the Dutch master encourages children to experience the charm and mystery of Vermeer's work. Large, vibrant reproductions allow for a close study of the fascinating details that make Vermeer's paintings so compelling and allow the colors for which he was so famous to leap off the page. While recent books and movies have brought Vermeer into the forefront of popular culture, this lively and informative book introduces the artist to children.

I love the Prestel Adventures in Art series for the beautiful reproductions of the works of important artists that they make available for children. The value of the text within the series is not all of the same quality, though, and this is not one of the best. The text here is mainly "retelling" of what is happening in the paintings and speculations about what the subjects might be thinking. Skip the text and just enjoy the paintings.
