This is an excellent resource for helping students to learn how to train their eyes to view a painting for composition and lighting techniques.

Absolutely beautiful. This is a shining example of the superb use of technology in education. The learning object is simply even elegantly presented and richly informative about all aspects of the Vermeer painting with lovely detailed close-ups illustrating key points. The content is sensitive, yet scholarly, reflecting both expertise and an obvious love for the painting. This is exemplary as art history and as pedagogy. I will use this as a mini teaching module in an online grad course called "Art & Crime" for students unfamiliar with the issues and methods involved in the study of works of art.
