In the full tide of his success, however, we find Vermeer’s death recorded in the registers of Delft. Under what circumstances it occurred is not related; we know only that it took place in December, 1675, when he was but forty three years of age, that he left a family of eight children, and that he was buried in the Oude Kerk (old Church) of his native town of Delft.
