Book Review: The Vermeer Interviews


Have you ever wished that paintings could talk about themselves? Well, in The Vermeer Interviews you get to see seven of Vermeer's beautiful pieces of art and see what they think about themselves and Master Vermeer. The paintings are The Milk Maid, The Geographer, The Artist in His Studio, Woman in Blue Reading A Letter, Young Woman with a Water Pitcher, Woman with a Pearl Necklace and The Music Lesson. See how you are drawn in along with Bob Raczka and see how the paintings criticize themselves, admire themselves, and just talk about themselves.This book is really a great read, I recommend it to a lot of people.
