View of Delft - Vermeer/
Vermeer’s painting View of Delft is the most famous cityscape from seventeenth-century Holland. It shows the view of the harbour from the south side, painted from an upper-storey house on the Hooikade. The interplay of light and shade, the impressive cloudy sky and the subtle reflections in the water make this painting an absolute masterpiece!
It is a magnificent view that you can still admire in person today. You will find the exact location where Vermeer painted his View of Delft at the Hooikade in Delft. It is just a 10-minute walk from the city centre.
