The book is devoted to analyzing the oeuvre of Jan Vermeer in the context of Delft School development and the epoque of Baroque art. The author focuses on Vermeer's style which evolved due to traditions of genre painting adopted in the Netherlands, however, its unique features bring genre painting to the level of symbolic generalization. The first 9 chapters of this research are displaying various aspects of Vermeer's art, and the 10th chapter reflects on how the principles of the "Delft Sphinx" resonate with contemporary art.
