This glossary contains a number of recurrent terms found on the present site which may not be clear to all readers, especially when employed within the context of an art discussion. Some of these terms, signaled by an icon of the Vermeer’s monogram and signature, are also discussed as they relate to specifically Vermeer’s art. Each of the four sections of the glossary can be accessed from the menu top of each page of the glossary entries.
