21. Vermeer's Women with Lloyd Spencer
Welcome back to the Jo's Art History Podcast! It's episode 21!
This week I sit down with artist and art historian Lloyd Spencer to talk about one of the greatest artist to ever live - VERMEER!
Now considered a master of the Dutch Golden Age, Vermeer only ever completed 35 paintings within his life. What is even more interesting is that the majority of these paintings feature women as the main or only subject! But, WHY??
Lloyd has gone above and beyond for this episode by creating a website where he has complied his notes and images we discuss in the podcast called Vermeer’s Women. Please find the link in the show notes below:

So it back and relax as Lloyd and I discuss Vermeer’s love of depicting women, his incredible attention to detail, his love of primary colours and why it is important to look and think again about this incredible body of work!
