View of Delft by Johannes Vermeer.
The original “Lost Vermeer” painting from The Great Game.
View of Delft was painted by Vermeer between 1660 and 1661 and shows a view of the artist’s hometown. It is an oil on canvas and is currently housed in The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague. Perhaps Vermeer’s most popular painting is Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Sherlock’s production designers have recreated the original painting to show a night scene, cutting out a portion from the top and bottom of the canvas. They have kept the cityscape almost identical.
