Vermeer study his work on an interactive site




I have been following the work of Jonathan Janson who has been studying the works of Vermeer, when I came across this interactive site The Essential Vermeer
You can study individual paintings with an interactive analysis, which is very informative.

He sees curves,
the roundness of shoulders,
soft arms muscle-bulged,
lips arched, complicit.
Captures it
with one deft stroke;
