"Let us strive to make each moment beautiful."
Saint Francis DeSales
painting by Katie Bergenholtz

Jan Vermeer's The Geographer {1668-1669) and The Astronomer {1668}


The Geographer, 1668-1669. Oil on canvas and The Astronomer, 1668. Oil on canvas

We decided to use Jimmie's idea to compare two similar paintings by Vermeer, The Geographer and The Astronomer. The use of a venn diagram helped the boys to make this comparison.
It really helped them to take their time and look at the details of the painting, and it was a lot of fun for them!
