WhatfettleAnd Then There Were 35

Wow! The BBC reports how an Art Treasure is Confirmed as Vermeer. This brings the total number of paintings atributed to Vermeer to 35 and provides a marvellous excuse to upload some of my pictures of Delft.

A couple of years ago we killed a couple of hours in Delft market waiting for the ferry:

The Mr Fish van where we had a fantastic Herring roll:

Delft dock hadn’t changed much:

The Johannes Vermeer cafe:

I’m also reminded of Norm Walsh’s excellent Dinner With Vermeer pictures, where a series of the master’s paintings were reenacted as tableaux vivants. Something I’m going to suggest we try as a school fundraiser.
