The 17th century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer was fascinated with portraying ordinary life. At the time he made a very modest living from his paintings and sadly was in debt when he died. His work now is admired and revered - he is considered to be one of the best painters of his time. His skill with composition and light is unique. Perhaps his most famous painting is Girl with a Pearl Earring; her gaze is mesmerizing and her beauty enchanting.
