I don't think Vermeer did any nudes
and he is one my favorites
This has got to be the most comprehensive Vermeer site

The Essential Vermeer Lover

Created by painter Jonathan Janson, this Web site consists of over 250 pages
of information on the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer, broadly categorized
into his art, his life, and related research. Examples from the art area
are: an illustrated list of Vermeer's paintings in chronological order that
includes both thumbnail-size b&w and larger color images, dimensions and
locations of the originals, and descriptions excerpted from various art
historical texts; Jon Boone's essay "The 'Missing' Vermeer's: A Brief
Account of Vermeer's Oeuvre," explaining why, after hundreds of years of
scholarship, only 34 or 35 paintings are definitely attributed to Vermeer;
the Dissius Auction, a sale of paintings in 1696 including 21 Vermeers; and
Erroneously Attributed Vermeers and Fakes, including some by the notorious
forger Van Meegeren. In the life section, visitors will find timelines and a
biographical sketch of Vermeer. Also at the site are links to additional
Web-based and printed resources, a list of international Vermeer events,
recent novels and movies inspired by Vermeer, the Vermeer Newsletter, an
audio guide to correct Dutch pronunciations, and a children's corner with
puzzles, where you can see how fast you can re-assemble _Woman in Blue
Reading a Letter_. [DS]
