The is a novel about four months in Vermeer's life close to the end of his apprenticeship in 1653. It is called THE LITTLE STREET (ISBN-10: 055706984X
ISBN-13: 978-0557069842) and is available at . Even though nothing is actually known about the artist's life at that time, the novel is very accurate in depicting Vermeer's world. It explores in depth his relationships with his teachers and contemporaries, and his future wife, Catharina Bolnes. There is also much written about his technique and emerging artistic sensitivities.

Anyone interested in Vermeer and his art might do well to take a look at it.
