"The Geographer"

Jan Vermeer - Oil - 1669 - (Städelsches Kunstinstitut museum (Frankfurt, Germany))

The Geographer is a painting created by Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer in 1668-1669, and is now in the collection of the Städelsches Kunstinstitut museum in Frankfurt am Main. This is one of only three paintings Vermeer signed and dated (the other two are The Astronomer and The Procuress). The geographer, dressed in a Japanese-style robe then popular among scholars, is shown to be "someone excited by intellectual inquiry", with his active stance, the presence of maps, charts, a globe and books, as well as the dividers he holds in his right hand, according to Arthur Wheelock Jr. "The energy in this painting [...] is conveyed most notably through the figure's pose, the massing of objects on the left side of the composition, and the sequence of diagonal shadows on the wall to the right."
