Title Details
Eye of the Beholder by Snyder, Laura J.
Eye of the Beholder: Johannes Vermeer, Antoni Van Leeuwenhoek, and the Reinvention of Seeing
by Snyder, Laura J.
 
On a summer day in 1674, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek gazed through a tiny lens set into a brass holder and discovered a never-before imagined world of microscopic life. At the same time, in a nearby attic, the painter Johannes Vermeer was using another optical device, a camera obscura, to experiment with light and create the most luminous pictures ever beheld. Laura J. Snyder here transports us to the streets, inns, and guildhalls of 17th-century Holland, where mingling artists and scientists invented the modern way of seeing.
