The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has put together the largest Vermeer exhibition in history – it will never be repeated. This momentous retrospective is the largest ever devoted exclusively to the “master of light”, with 28 of his 35 known works from countries all over the world. Never have so many Vermeer masterpieces been brought together in one place.
Exhibition on Screen’s documentary film “Vermeer: The Greatest Exhibition” brings this historic exhibition to more audiences worldwide. This stunning documentary, released in April 2023, invites audiences to a private viewing of this spectacular exhibition on the big screen, accompanied by the director of the Rijksmuseum and the curators of the show.
The film is directed by David Bickerstaff (Pisarro: Father of Impressionism, Sunflowers) and provides art lovers with a chance to see Vermeer’s masterpieces – including Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Geographer, The Milkmaid and the newly restored Girl Reading a Letter at the Open Window – in a way that no one else can. As well as a unique encounter with the work of the great 17th Century artist, the film reveals insights from the team behind the Exhibition, world-renowned curators and Vermeer experts, shedding new light on Vermeer’s mysterious life and masterful work, the artistic choices and motivations for his compositions, as well as the creative process behind his paintings.
Runtime is 90 minutes. This event is in-person only. Registration recommended to save your seat.
