4.314 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.

This large two-tier Vermeer 115 chandelier is a remarkable example of Dutch brass craftsmanship from the 17th century. Each of the chandelier's 70 cm-wide tiers is illuminated by 12 beautiful arms united by a central column with an etched floral motif. The hollow copper chandelier has a height of 70 cm, but its curved arms and ornate frame give it a light, airy elegance. This chandelier from the 1600s illuminates contemporary spaces while evoking the atmosphere of candle-lit palaces and mansions of Holland's past. The Vermeer 115 adds an opulent addition to modern environments with its split-level design and warm metallic sheen.
