Alette presented a spectacular tour of the Vermeer exhibit—I felt like I was at the Rijismuseum with a most knowledgeable guide. This is an experience that could not be duplicated even if I was able to go to Amsterdam and see the Vermeer paintings myself.
Dr. Fleischer brought every painting to life - she is a master storyteller which made our virtual tour so enjoyable.
I was so excited to be able to view and have expert commentary on the amazing Vermeer Exhibition in the Rijksmuseum ! As always Dr Fleischer was informative and fun with her personal experience of the exhibit, her knowledge of the subject, and her own very human observations. This Context offering shows how the digital world can bring the special.moment in time happening in Amsterdam right into my living room!
The lecture seemed so personal. Alette's demeanor was very relaxed and made it feel like we were sitting around her livingroom with her. I learned a great deal about the exhibition and the individual paintings. What was most helpful for me was learning how the work was presented and how I would walk though it.
This was wonderful. I really felt like I was in the Museum. Waht a treat to see so many Vermeers close-up. Dr. Fleischer was an excellent guide.
