  1. En upplevelse i dubbel bemärkelse.
    Dansken 50, 20 maj 2024

    Som konstintresserad läste jag boken för en del år sedan, för att sedan läsa den en gång till, vilket var lika fantastiskt som 1.gången. Denna bok var till en konstintresserad konfirmand ihop med ett par pärlörhänge som konfirmationspresent. Hoppas hon får en fin läsupplevelse och blir än mera intresserad av konst i alla möjliga former och historien bakom bakom kända konstverk.

'Chevalier's writing skill and her knowledge of seventeenth-century Delft are such that she creates a world reminiscent of a Vermeer interior: suspended in a particular moment, it transcends its time and place' New Yorker 'Chevalier's book is a delight' Simon Jenkins, Guardian 'This is a wonderful novel, mysterious, steeped in atmosphere. It is deeply revealing about the process of paintinga truly magical experience.' Guardian 'This is a novel which deserves, and I am sure will win, a prize or two.' Times 'A portrait of radianceTracy Chevalier brings the real artist Vermeer and a fictional muse to life in a jewel of a novel.' Time 'It has a slow, magical current of its own that picks you up and carries you stealthily alonga beautiful story, lovingly told by a very talented writer.' Daily Mail 'Life in 17th century Delft is evoked with a sharp eye for historical detail and the descriptions of Vermeer at work are superbly drawn. A sensuous and vividly crafted work of fiction from a highly talented young novelist.' Mail on Sunday This sensually luminous novel brings Vermeer and his art to life through bold sumptuous prose.
