I have recently found two videos which are well worth having a look at to have a general overview of Vermeer and his contemporaries:
- In Spanish: ArteHistoria, Vermeer el ciudadano de Delft: http://www.artehistoria.jcyl.es/genios/videos/184.htm
This video contains a brief general overview of the context, biography and art of Vermeer and his contemporaries. In addition, this webpage also includes other videos of different paintings of Vermeer as well as other artists.
- In English: Norton Simon Museum, Multimedia The Intimate Interior: Vermeer and His Contemporaries by Anne Woollett: http://www.nortonsimon.org/multimedia/videos/annewoollett.php?video=medium
This video shows a presentation given by Anne Woollet who offers a deeper analysis of the interiors depicted by Johannes Vermeer.
I hope they will be of some help! 🙂
