The View of Delft is a painting finished around 1660-1661 by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. It is housed in the Mauritshuis of The Hague...The View of Delft is chronologically the last painting by Vermeer that was executed in rich, full pigmentation, with colour accents put in with a fully loaded brush. The artist outdid himself in a rendition of his hometown, which stands as a truly great interpretation of nature.
