Vermeer van Delft

Artist ID:

The scope of Jan Vermeer's complete works is very small, with only 37 paintings known today, although further titles have survived from old auction records. Vermeer's first works were history paintings, but he became known for his genre scenes, which make up a large part of his work. The best-known works through today's reception are The View of Delft and The Girl with the Pearl Earrings. Due to the small number of known paintings, in the 19th century, paintings by other artists were wrongly attributed to him. Today, however, his body of work is generally accepted by researchers.

Jan Vermeer van Delft, also known as Johannes Vermeer (baptised 31 October 1632 in Delft; † 15 December 1675 in Delft; contemporary Joannis ver Meer, Joannis van der Meer), is one of the most famous Dutch painters of the Baroque period. He worked in the era of the Dutch Golden Age, during which the country experienced a period of political, economic and cultural prosperity.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.
