The British Royal Collection is one of the largest and most important art collections in the world, and one of the last great European royal collections to remain intact. Capturing almost all aspects of the fine and decorative arts fields and comprising more than a million objects, the Collection is a unique and valuable record of the personal tastes of kings and queens over the past 500 years.
Sabry Amroussi will guide participants through his personal (and, alright, also the Queen's....) favorites from this enormous and vast repository of fine art. Join us as we journey from renaissance masterpieces like the sketchbooks of Leonardo da Vinci, works by Lotto, Raphael, and Mantegna, and from there into one of the most beautiful and complete collections of Dutch Masters like Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, and Steen in the world. 

Sabry Amroussi is an art historian and writer living and working in Amsterdam. He specializes in the art of the Dutch Golden Age, mainly in the works of Rembrandt and his school, and has a keen interest in the Jewish history of Amsterdam. He lectures and teaches on both subjects and gives art historical tours all across Europe. As a true omnivore when it comes to art, culture, and even cuisine, he has worked with and for major museums and collectors, such as the LACMA, Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and the P de Boer collection in Amsterdam. As a guide for Context, he is eager to share this knowledge in real life, always with a big scoop of humor, ofter intermingling art with social life, cuisine, and history.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

King Sabry's British Royal Collection

Sabry, King of Art Historians, presents well-known Masterpieces in the British Royal Collection, as well as several remarkable little-known painters! This lecture should be offered OFTEN!

Always a treat

Sabry's enthusiasm and knowledge are just wonderful. I have taken several seminars with him and he never fails to provide me with an enhanced understanding of art history, while also being very entertaining! I look forward future seminars and hope to be able to take a tour in person in the not too distant future.
