3.273 inc. VAT

Johannes Vermeer (1632 - 1675) painted many Dutch interiors besides his famous "Girl with a Pearl Earring". In the painting "The Art of Painting", a magnificent golden chandelier hangs above the painter and his subject. Dutch historians have noted that such chandeliers allowed artists to demonstrate their expertise in rendering shimmering and refracting copper under changing lighting conditions. A true testament to their craftsmanship and artistry.

A stunning example of 17th-century Dutch lighting design, the Vermeer 110 chandelier attracts attention with its 74 cm wide solid copper frame and eight gently extending arms. With curling metal accents surrounding the body, this stunning antique fixture retains a subtle beauty despite its height of about 60 cm. This timeless sculpture evokes memories of the Golden Age, when grand halls and public spaces were lit by candlelit chandeliers. The Vermeer 110 pays homage to the masterful brassware of its time, but is electrified for contemporary use.
