The exhibition, Pieter de Hooch in Delft: From the shadow of Vermeer&nbsp;is the first retrospective of the artist&rsquo;s work in his own country.&nbsp;After Vermeer, Pieter de Hooch is widely considered to be the most&nbsp;celebrated Delft master of the 17th century. The paintings De Hooch&nbsp;produced in Delft (ca. 1652-1660) will be at the heart of the exhibition:&nbsp;his most beautiful courtyards and interiors will return to the city where&nbsp;they were painted almost 400 years ago.<br />
