Jim Welu presents: Johannes Vermeer’s Mania for Maps

The UXLocale 510 Hartford Ave W, Uxbridge

No other painter from 17th-century Holland expressed a greater interest in cartography than the famous Dutch master Johannes Vermeer. His detailed depictions of maps and globes coincide with the great age of exploration and mapmaking. This lecture by the leading authority on Vermeer’s use of cartographic material demonstrates that all of the maps and globes in Vermeer’s paintings can be identified, though few originals still exist. These cartographic objects and how Vermeer used them not only add further meaning to his paintings; they also shed light on his working method.
