Tombstone Tuesday: The grave of Johannes Vermeer


Johannes Vermeer, the celebrated painter of masterpieces like Girl with a pearl earring, The Milkmaid, and The Little Street, is buried in the Oude Kerk (Old Church) in Delft.

On the photo below you can see his grave. Originally his grave was unmarked, this stone was placed only a few years ago. Vermeer was Lid van het Sint-Lucasgilde, member of the Guild of Saint Luke. The image at the bottom of the stone is the guild's seal.
