Resumen

MIRANDA C, Marcelo. Johannes Vermeer and Anthon van Leeuwenhoek: Delft Art and Science together during the golden Dutch century. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2009, vol.137, n.4, pp.567-574. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872009000400017.

Johannes Vermeer and Anthon van Leeuwenhoek are among the greatest geniuses in Art and Science respectively. During the seventeenth century, they achieved innovative advances. Vermeer, in painting, created a new intímate view of people specially women, developing the treatment of light and details. Leeuwenhoek, friend of Vermeer, influenced him in the use of the obscure camera in his works. In spite of having no formal academic education, he made extremely relevant discoveries with the use of microscope. He showed for first time human spermatozoids, red blood cells, brain, nerve and muscle structures and described many living animals. These two brilliant contemporary Dutch men made a great contribution to our civilization.
