    THE JAN VERMEER NICK DRAKE PARALLELThe brilliant painter Jan Vermeer lived a short life 1632 75 and knocked out 34, maybe 35 paintings The earliest is dated 1655 when he was 23 so that was a production rate of 1.75 per year from then on Not great When he died he was unknown outside Holland and it stayed that way pretty much for 200 years Then, a French art critic tienne Joseph Th ophile Thor discovered him began buying up his stuff A lot of it was attributed to otherfamous paint THE JAN VERMEER NICK DRAKE PARALLELThe brilliant painter Jan Vermeer lived a short life 1632 75 and knocked out 34, maybe 35 paintings The earliest is dated 1655 when he was 23 so that was a production rate of 1.75 per year from then on Not great When he died he was unknown outside Holland and it stayed that way pretty much for 200 years Then, a French art critic tienne Joseph Th ophile Thor discovered him began buying up his stuff A lot of it was attributed to otherfamous painters, so that was a problem By the end of the 19th century Vermeer had arrived, from zero to hero, he was everyone s favourite naturalistic Dutchman He then had a second revival when in 1999 Tracy Chevalier wrote Girl with a Pearl Earring which is all about Vermeer, followed by the movie in which Colin Firth gets to play the man himself So now EVERYONE knows about Vermeer.The some say brilliant singer songwriter Nick Drake lived an even shorter life 1948 74 and recorded three short albums before he died, which sold pitifully, partly because he wasn t up to doing any live work or promotional interviews So not surprisingly he got lost in the shuffle He was a namecheck for musicians to drop in the 1990s but still no one was buying then came THE ADVERT whereby a guy called Ron Lawner chief creative officer of Arnold Communications put together a one minute ad for the new VW Cabrio in 1999 Wiki quotes Ron s press release as follows The song is very special It s an old song by a guy named Nick Drake It s called Pink Moon and is actually a very good introduction to Nick Drake if you re not familiar with him It s very transporting And to us seemed very fitting for a beautiful drive in the country on a very special night.And Wiki continues The Volkswagen Cabriolet commercial, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and filmed by Lance Acord, led to a large increase in record sales, and a number five placing for Pink Moon in .com s sales chartI found this appreciation of the ad For me, the Nick Drake VW ad singlehandedly reversed my thinking on that issue, because it showed me what was possible in mixing art with marketing The ad successfully positions Nick Drake and Cabrio as the perfect choices among a certain set of thoughtful and attractive, of course young people If the mission of the modern commercial is not to sell a product but to connect that product with a desirable lifestyle, then the Cabrio ad is a smashing success It s not selling a car so much as it s selling a dream almost literally, given the ad s beautiful, hypnotic marriage of sound and image.So now we all know about Vermeer and Nick Drake Maybe it was inevitable It tookthan 200 years for the painter and 25 years for the songwriter and who is to say that a record, that single combination of voice, instrument, melody, rhythm and lyric, isn t the equivalent of the single combination of paint, technique, perspective and vision in a canvas not me So all you artists, painters, authors, poets, sculptors, songwriters, musicians, whatever don t worry that everyone s totally ignoring you right now We will get to you all in the end It just might take a while

    I bought this after two novels that centered on two Vermeer paintings Girl with the Pearl Earring,and GIrl in Hyacinth Blue came out I had not realized that so few of his paintings existed and I love them

    This was interesting I recognized some of the paintings that was in the movie Girl with a Pearl Earring The art work in this is really good The attention to detail and the facial expressions conveyed in the art is also good.

    I have kept this book too long and need to pass it on The oversize format allows the paintings to be displayed so thatdetail can be enjoyed The text offers some information on how some of these paintings were influenced by other paintings and Vermeer s mentors I found the repetition of some of the wall hangings, stained glass windows and flooring to be interesting Was this the same room that he set up in different ways as he painted or was it just the comfort of the same designs Defini I have kept this book too long and need to pass it on The oversize format allows the paintings to be displayed so thatdetail can be enjoyed The text offers some information on how some of these paintings were influenced by other paintings and Vermeer s mentors I found the repetition of some of the wall hangings, stained glass windows and flooring to be interesting Was this the same room that he set up in different ways as he painted or was it just the comfort of the same designs Definitely salve to the soul to enjoy the beauty of these paintings I would love to see some of these in person

    This large approximately 10 x 14 volume includes beautiful colour plates of Johannes Vermeer s works alongside illustrations of references Vermeer may have drawn inspiration from The six pages of text gives the reader a short biography and descriptions of the paintings, enough to inspire further study In addition, each plate is annotated This is a lovely addition to anyone s art book library.

    Hmmm.I wrote a blurb about thsi book several weeks ago but it doesn t seem to have survived the computer problems we were having Too bad, because it was riveting Vermeer didn t paint much or he painted lots but not many of his works have survived And of those, very few appeal to me the people are often wearing lewd expressions or have moon faces that aren t attractive I do like The Little Street ,View of Delft and Young Woman with a Water Pitcher.

    I checked this out from the library on a whim I like Vermeer and am familiar with his body of work This is a large scale binding with full color plates It was most interesting to me to see the repetitiveness of that one window in that one room Without being able to see so many prints next to each other, I hadn t noticed that before.
