Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The Dutch painter Jan Vermeer of Delft transformed traditional Dutch themes into images of fantastic poise and peace, rich with symbolic meaning.

The documented facts about Jan Vermeer's life are few.  He was born on October 30 or 31, 1632, in Delft, Netherlands, the second of two children to Digna Baltens and Reynier Jansz. His father was an art dealer and silk weaver who also kept a tavern, and Vermeer probably took over the business after his father's death in 1655 (showing 500 of 5568 characters).
