"Vermeer's Camera:…in his almost scientific examination of the world using a lens, we should think of Vermeer in the same context as those scientific geniuses of the 17th century, the microscopist van Leeuwenhoek, who turned his lens on the miniature world contained in a drop of water, and Galileo, who turned his telescope to the heavens."

"Biography of VERMEER VAN DELFT, Jan (b. 1632, Delft, d. 1675, Delft) in the Web Gallery of Art, a searchable image collection and database"
" Rembrandt was underestimated; his contemporary Jan Vermeer of Delft was completely ignored. Vermeer was modestly successful as a painter/art dealer, well-respected in Delft, but never gained much of a reputation outside. After his death, he was forgotten almost entirely. In the nineteenth century he was "rediscovered" and since the beginning of the twentieth has been considered one of the finest painters ever."
