In the spring of 2023, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam opened its doors to the largest Vermeer exhibition in history. The show sold out within days of going on sale. This film offers you the chance to experience the once-in-a-lifetime exhibition on the big screen…With loans from across the world, this major retrospective will bring together Vermeer’s most famous masterpieces including Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Geographer, The Milkmaid, The Little Street, Lady Writing a Letter with her Maid, and Woman Holding a Balance. In all, 28 of his surviving 35 works.
This Exhibition on Screen film invites audiences to a privileged view of the exhibition, accompanied by the director of the Rijksmuseum and the curators of the show. A truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Just who was this master of paint, living in Delft in the Netherlands between 1632 and 1675? The answer lies in the paintings and never before has there been a film that shows them in this much detail and with this much context. (90m)
“There will never be another Vermeer show as great as this one” – Washington Post
“This is more than an exhibition. It’s a miracle.” – The Guardian
