In spite of all my efforts and of those who preceded me in combing through Delft's
archives, less documentary evidence has survived regarding Vermeer himself
than regarding his grandparents, his uncles and aunts, and especially his in-laws

Reversed) again to be found in drawings by Nicolaes Maes.127 It does not
appear that even these figures can be credited to Vermeer's invention. The
Geographer takes up precisely the position of Faust in Rembrandt's famous
etching128 and in the resemblance we can for once trace Vermeer's radiant and
