In this interdisciplinary study drawing from the history of art and the history of science, Huerta explores the conceptual intersections found in the work of the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer and the microscopist Antony van Leeuwenhoek as well as the broader relationships existing between painting and science during the seventeenth century. Huerta argues that Vermeer's use of the camera obscura and other instrumental adjuncts parallels Leeuwenhoek's pursuit of the "optical way" and speaks of a profound philosophical connection between these investigators.
