Another great book for introducing children (and adults) to an amazing artist. These books are great because they are concise, yet packed with information. The illustrations help connect the text to the artist in a fun way. Great for classroom or home libraries.

I have read most of Mike Venezia's books on the U.S. Presidents and was excited to see that he has a series on world famous artists as well. My daughter and I recently read a book about the art of Johannes Vermeer so I thought this would be a great edition to begin with. Very little is known about Vermeer, yet Mike Venezia did a wonderful job describing what is known and also a little about life in Holland during Vermeer's time.

I like Venezia's little books about famous artists. I think he does a nice job of introducing the reader to Vermeer, his work, and the circumstances and people who affected his art.

I love this whole series but this Vermeer book has practically nothing about Vermeer in it probable due to the fact that so little is known about him.

This is the first book of the series I buy... I wanted to check one title out before buying other books by this author. I won't be buying more. The narration style is just awful, the information uninteresting... I thought I could at least use it for its images, but the reproduction quality, at least in my copy, is very very bad. For not much more money, there are beautiful art books for children out there. This one, even if the quality of the images were good, at almost 7 US dollars, is too expensive for what you get.
