Vermeer is famed for his technical talents and contribution to the art world during the 17th century. He was a master of chiaroscuro and realism painting and he drew inspiration from the Italian Baroque era.

Vemeer was mostly influenced by his religion and his Dutch culture. "Being raised Protestant, Vermeer painted everyday images and his surroundings due to the fact that Protestant Dutch society held the natural aspects of life in high esteem."

The relationship between Vemeer's The Little Street and Paul Cezanne's Curtains, are related by the use of warm colors, being both realist artists, and the landscape style of the art. The realtionship between the two painting is the likeness in painting objects and not people.
