Sabry's enthusiasm for the subject and dry wit made for a fascinating talk. I really enjoyed seeing the side by side comparisons of similar paintings by Rembrandt and Hals. Sabry included paintings from the Philadelphia Museum of Art made his observations even more interesting. His extensive knowledge of history, culture, painting technique, and pigments made his talk absorbing. I was totally engrossed.

Excellent, in-depth discussion of 2 of the most important painters of the Dutch Golden Age. I may not always agree with Sabry, but he always makes his points with an expert's knowledge and real passion. This was an especially fine seminar.
I have done two of Sabry's seminars as he's incredible with the amount of information he packs into this. Tons of detail, back story, hidden meanings that you would never get seeing these pieces in person. Truly exceptional.
Knowing that Sabry is an expert Rembrandt as well as a fan himself, I was looking forward to his presentation of these two superstars of the Golden Age. I was not disappointed. Sabry broke the presentation down into a logical structure and made his case for each, using his expertise and fabulous high-res images to get us inside each crack of the paintings. 90 minutes went by in a flash...I would have happily done 90 more! An excellent presentation and truly the best of all of Sabry's that I've done.
