There is an extensive gallery which offers a visual feast which summarises the best moments of Vermeer’s career, capturing each and every one of the important paintings which helped to place his work in such high regard by academics and fans alike. For a short period these paintings had actually lost respect before reappearing in recent centuries once Vermeer has essentially been re-discovered.
Many will select prints for reproduction directly from the gallery found in this new website, as some fans may not wish to look far beyond his best known paintings and stick with something that they know well to find something suitable for their home. They may also be interested to discover the background behind each of these paintings and that is also provided within this new website which hosts extensive detail on many Vermeer-related topics.
There have been many inclusions of this artist within the media in recent years and that has helped to keep his name very much in the spotlight. It is not clear as to why he lost popularity over a short period just after his lifetime but his work certainly deserves the recognition that it receives today.
There will likely to be further expansions to the new Vermeer website as feedback comes in and suggestions are prioritised and then implemented. There is a great audience out there with an interest in this painter and so there will likely be lots of new ideas that come flooding in as news of the site spreads. There may also be further additions to the online gallery in order to make it truly comprehensive of the full breadth of his paintings, but this will take quite some time to achieve.
