To visit

It is – of course – impossible to see the city of Delft unless through a screen of tropes: Vermeer and Delft Blue, to name but a few. Spent a few hours last week happily re- visiting  old haunts and looking at some new places – for instance the Art Supermarket that I stumbled upon close to the Old Church. Nice place, nice cafe, affordable art – I would not mind selling some of my stuff there! Have a contact name and number so could give it a try.

In Delft, Vermeer is everywhere – his ‘girl with a pearl earring‘ I photographed in a cafe, looking over her shoulder at us cofffee-drinkers. His ‘little street‘ I encountered leaving Begijnhof (situated between the Spoorsingel and the Oude Delft).  Delft Blue in abundance at the Art Supermarket – forgot to write down the name of the artist that composed these pieces.  Also met with a second-hand shop by the name of ‘niets nieuws’ i.e. ‘nothing new’. Was not open so it goes on my ‘to visit’ list.
