Very few paintings, less than forty in all, can be attributed with certainty to Vermeer, but each one is a perfectly achieved study of light, colour and space. For all his profound originality, Vermeer is very much a part of the Dutch tradition, combining realism and sobriety with a skilful rendering of perspective and optical effects.
