Description

For the first time in 220 years, the Rijksmuseum will be home to an exclusive Vermeer retrospective from February 10th to June 4th of this year. The elusive painter, Joannes Vermeer (1632 - 1675) of Delft, only ever created a small number of paintings, and today we know of only thirty-six works. His iconic style, along with his exclusivity, has helped make Vermeer one of the most interesting and sought-after painters in history.

The Rijksmuseum's exclusive exhibition will feature twenty-eight of his thirty-six works all in one location, truly making it a unique opportunity never before seen in the art world, and not to be seen again for some time. To best prepare for a visit to this exhibit, or to travel through it from the comfort of your home, your expert, art historian, Dr. Alette Fleischer, will walk you through all twenty-eight of Vermeer's works as well as the organization and key thematic points of the exhibit in an in-depth virtual visit. 

Additionally, Dr. Fleischer will dive into a special exhibition in Vermeer's own hometown Furthermore it will inform you on a special exhibition in Vermeer's hometown of Delft at the Princenhof Museum. This exhibit will present works by Vermeer's contemporaries, alongside objects commonly found in Vermeer's paintings: ceramics and carpets, as well as archival objects and personal documents. This seminar, led by art historian and 17th century expert, Dr. Alette Fleischer, will prepare you for your upcoming visit to Amsterdam, and gives the stay-at-homers a unique virtual experience of a lifetime.
