Johannes Vermeer’s luminous paintings are admired around the world, yet we do not understand how they were made. Jane Jelley, an artist herself, unlocks some painters’ secrets to open the studio door and glimpse him at work in his hometown of Delft. Jane provides fascinating new evidence for Vermeer’s use of a camera obscura, and explains puzzling aspects of his paintings by reference to her experiments using authentic painting materials and techniques.
