The creation painter man - Creation - Encyclopedia Volume - Catholic Encyclopedia.

If we wish to imagine Vermeer the man, we must rely uniquely on the interpretation his 35 (?) paintings.. But can we really know something of a man from his painting? The belief that an artist makes himself know through his work has ancient roots. In seventeenth-century Netherlands the notion that one’s art was a reflection of one’s character is neatly summed up in the popular saying, “zoo de man was, was zyn werk” (so the man, so the work). However, at times a painter's work reflects fairly accurately what we know of his character, as in the cases of Pablo Picasso or Salvador Dalì, and at others there seems to be no relation whatsoever. The capability of an artist to reach into the depths of his being seems in many cases to exist independently from his outward character.
