Description

In this conversation, we will be led through the Golden Age of Dutch art through a selection of paintings and objects from the world-renowned collection of Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum. The discussion will immerse us in the time of Rembrandt and Vermeer, exploring all the crucial masterworks. We'll talk about the 'Jewish Bride' and "The Milkmaid", intertwined with lovely nuggets of knowledge and anecdotes on life and culture in the booming cities of 17th century Holland. The Rijksmuseum holds the world's finest collection of Dutch art from the 17th century, and this is the ideal experience for those with an interest in this period.
Led by a specialist in the Golden Age, Sabry Amroussi (who considers the Rijksmuseum his second home), we'll see the period brought to light by both his humor and knowledge. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with a profound understanding of what this period in time meant to art, society, and the world as a whole.
