The National Gallery, London, is offering a major exhibition on one of the most startling and fascinating artists of all-time, Johannes Vermeer. Vermeer is most popularly known as the painter of the Girl with a Pearl Earring. Vermeer painted little more than 30 works that still exist, and the National Gallery has chosen to focus on his art in relation to music. The event goes beyond the exhibition to tell the entire story of Vermeers life and, in doing so, shows in detail many other of the artists great works. The program will suit the wide audience who adore Vermeers work and who want both to see it in detail and to learn more about this mysterious, fascinating man.
