Read full description of the books:
The remarkable story of how an artist and a scientist in seventeenth-century Holland transformed the way we see the world.
On a summer day in 1674, in the small Dutch city of Delft, Antoni van Leeuwenhoeka cloth salesman, local bureaucrat, and self-taught natural philosophergazed through a tiny lens set into a brass holder and discovered a never-before imagined world of microscopic life. At the same time, in a nearby attic, the painter Johannes Vermeer was using another optical device, a camera obscura, to experiment with light and create the most luminous pictures ever beheld.
In Eye of the Beholder, Laura J. Snyder transports us to the streets, inns, and guildhalls of seventeenth-century Holland, where artists and scientists gathered, and to their studios and laboratories, where they mixed paints and prepared canvases, ground and polished lenses, examined and dissected insects and other animals, and invented the modern notion of seeing. With charm and narrative flair Snyder brings Vermeer and Van Leeuwenhoekand the men and women around themvividly to life. The story of these two geniuses and the transformation they engendered shows us why we see the worldand our place within itas we do today.
