Vermeer's attention to light and detail make this painting a true masterpiece, and give it a reflective atmosphere – maybe best captured in the water's reflections themselves.

Cracking sky

If you get up close to Klimt's sky, you can see how the paint has start to crack over the years.

A famous skyline

Delft's characteristic buildings are painted with very fine detail. In fact, Vermeer neatened up the buildings to look more clean and crisp than they did in real life!

A brave new world

The Dutch Golden Age saw The Netherlands lead the world in science, art, military power, and commerce. Vermeer paints this ocean-going galley with gold flecks, a symbol of the Golden Age.
