In spite of all my efforts and of those who preceded me in combing through Delft's
archives, less documentary evidence has survived regarding Vermeer himself
than regarding his grandparents, his uncles and aunts, and especially his in-laws
: Maria Thins, the formidable mother of his wife Catharina, and Catharina's
irascible brother Willem. Vermeer seems to have been exclusively devoted to his
art. He left few traces in the notarial archives and none in the judicial records of
his time.

We could have no idea how wrong we were. The returns for all the research had
in fact been fairly uninformative. Documents seemed to record little except the
studied reticence of the painter. Archives around the beginning of the
seventeenth century are in any event deceptive. Apart from the habit of going
before an attorney to lend or borrow quite trifling sums, law-abiding people left
only occasional traces of their existence between birth and burial. Surnames
were still in flux, quite ...
