737 inc. VAT

Wife of the famous Dutch Golden Age artist Johannes Vermeer, Catharina supported his career behind the scenes by managing household finances and raising their 11 children. Although their marriage was born out of pragmatism, a tender romance blossomed over time. Catherine often served as Vermeer's model, capturing her stoic beauty in iconic works such as Woman in Blue reading a letter. When Vermeer went bankrupt in 1675, the steadfast Catharina bravely continued running the family's art business and inn, ensuring that her husband's artistic legacy lived on. She protected his famous canvases until her death in 1684.

The two-armed wall luminaire Catherina 231 exudes 19th-century elegance, illuminating spaces with a graceful solid copper shape. Just 31 cm high and 28 cm wide, this striking yet sophisticated luminaire features delicate curling metalwork along its round frame. The Catherina 231 is long-winded yet modernly wired. It casts a warm, decadent glow that perfectly complements the Vermeer collection of electric chandeliers. With its ornate handmade details and antique copper finish, this small two-armed wall lamp embodies the finesse of classic Dutch metal art. Electric wall lights Catherina combine well with the electric chandeliers model Vermeer.
