Eye of the Beholder: Johannes Vermeer, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and the Reinvention of Seeing by Laura Snyder “On a summer day in 1674, in the small Dutch city of Delft, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek?a cloth salesman, local bureaucrat, and self-taught natural philosopher?gazed through a tiny lens set into a brass holder and discovered a never-before imagined world of microscopic life. At the same time, in a nearby attic, the painter Johannes Vermeer was using another optical device, a camera obscura, to experiment with light and create the most luminous pictures ever beheld . . .In Eye of the Beholder, Laura J. Snyder transports us to the streets, inns, and guildhalls of seventeenth-century Holland, where artists and scientists gathered, and to their studios and laboratories, where they mixed paints and prepared canvases, ground and polished lenses, examined and dissected insects and other animals, and invented the modern notion of seeing.” -Amazon.com Menu: Velma’s Chicken Salad over a Fruited Spinach Salad with Seasonal Berries, Mandarin Oranges, Crumbled Feta, and our house-made Apple Cider Vinaigrette, Cookie Led by Alice Novak .
