The Little Street by Johannes Vermeer

View of Houses in Delft, known as The Little Street
Oil on canvas, 21 3/8 x 17 3/8 inches, 1658

This cityscape is by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. Most of his works feature tranquil interior scenes. There is a lot of additional information available about the artist and this painting at the Rijksmuseum and on Essential Vermeer.


  1. Brandy, I'm so glad that you enjoy it!

  2. Leah,
    Nice link!, I had forgotten about this vermeer, the book I do have on him does not great reproductions, let alone close ups.

    Best thing about the web... (re)discovering through others.

  3. I saw this in person at the Rijksmuseum exactly a month ago. My favourite painter of all time.

  4. David- I agree, I love to discover and rediscover artwork through others!
    Jason- You're so lucky! The painting must have been outstanding in person.
