Painter of Daily Life

Codde Van Ostade Ter Borch
Metsu Vermeer Van Mieris
Hooch Claesz Saenredam
Ruisdael

Gerard Ter Borch, Pieter De Hooch, Salomon van Ruysdael and his nephew Jacob van Ruisdael, Paulus Potter, Jan Vermeer...After The Age of Rembrandt, after the glow and the relish of that particular period of the seventeenth century, there came a time of silence and the everyday; composition and the shimmering of paint and color then became the hallmarks of the paintings, much more so than the subjects they depicted. And Dutch seventeenth-century art embarked on a mediation upon the humble things of life in which a spiral of lemon peel touched on the universal. A window, light, a female face, colored fabrics: this was Vermeer, reconstructing the world with his brush.

The truculence, the joviality of Dutch genre painting, have impregnated our image of Holland. But we must beware: beyond the tavern scenes, beyond the apparent licentiousness, what unfolds before our eyes is a veritable theater of manners and morals, complete with its critics and moralistic intent. Vermeer makes us enter his paintings; but we must not allow the story they tell to distract us from his importance as a painter. He was a veritable pioneer of the geometric composition, and his handling of light placed him in a different class from any other Dutch genre painter.
