While the Rijksmuseum holds the largest repository of Dutch art from the Golden Age in the world, the Mauritshuis in the Hague by no doubt holds the finest one. Masterpieces from all genres and styles line the walls, together with canonical works by Holbein and Rubens for good measure. The nucleus of the collection is the essential masterpieces by Rembrandt and Vermeer, including the 'Anatomical Lesson', 'The View of Delft' and last but not least 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'. There is also a rather small but superb painting of a Goldfinch by Carel Fabritius.

This conversation will explore this incredible collection of Dutch art, taking viewers through the rooms of this often-overlooked museum (which is sometimes compared to the Frick collection because of its intimacy and quality). Sabry Amroussi is an art historian who has both studied and lectured about Golden Age art for over 20 years, specializing in Rembrandt and his school. With his humor and knowledge, he will leave his listeners with a profound understanding of what Dutch 17th century art of the highest caliber can do.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
