Discover the trades of the time: dairywoman, lacemaker, astronomer, geographer, maid, music teacher...Colour in the gabled houses of the Delft alley where the painter lives. Meet the girl with pearl earring. Discover the musical instruments of the time and decipher the messages hidden in his paintings and colour them in Vermeer's style.
