Making the Difference: Vermeer and Dutch Art

Johannes Vermeer [The Procuress]

Johannes Vermeer, Dutch master painter of the 17th century, whose art works are known for their tranquil scenes and characteristic expressions of light, continues to enthrall art fans around the world.
In this exhibition we will show works of Vermeer and Dutch painters of the same period. It is said that only 35 of Vermeer’s works survive today. Of these, six paintings will be shown in this exhibition, including “The Procuress” which will be shown in Japan for the first time. This exceeds the five works shown in the exhibition “The Public and the Private in the Age of Vermeer” which was held in 2000 at the Osaka Municipal Museum of Art and attracted approximately 600,000 visitors. This will be the largest Vermeer exhibition held to date in Western Japan.
In particular, “The Procuress” is a highly important work highlighting the change in Vermeer’s style from biblical subject matter to those of daily life. The gentleman depicted in the left is said to be a self-portrait of Vermeer. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover an unknown side of the “Master of Light”
