The Delft School is a conditional name for a group of Dutch artists of the 2nd half of the 17th century who worked in Delft, whose specialization was domestic and interior scenes.

The masters who arrived in Delft, together with local artists, participated in the creation of the so-called Delft school of painting, they showed interest in light-air effects, designing a space with the help of a promising construction and filling this space with a natural light-air environment. They were interested in the behavior of light in space, the play of light with objects and figures.
The foundations of the genre painting of the Delft school were laid by Karel Fabricius. The largest master of the Delft school of painting was Jan Vermer.
