Jan Vermeer View of Delft
The View of Delft is a painting finished around 1660-1661 by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. It is housed in the Mauritshuis of The Hague. Topographic views of cities had become a tradition by the time Vermeer painted his famous canvas. Hendrik Vroom was the author of two such works depicting Delft, but they are more archaic in that they followed the traditional panoramic approach that can be seen in the two cityscapes by Hercules Seghers at the Berlin museum. The latter artist was one of the first to make use of the inverted Galilean telescope to transcribe the preliminary prints and their proportions (more than twice as high as wide) into the more conventional format of his paintings.
