The Greatest Exhibition Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
(10 February – 4 June 2023)
with Chris Boïcos
Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) lived and worked in Delft. His work is best known for his tranquil, introverted indoor scenes, his unprecedented use of bright, colorful light and his near-photographic illusionism.
In contrast to Rembrandt, Vermeer left a remarkably small oeuvre with about 35 paintings. As his paintings generally considered the most prized treasures of every museum collection, Vermeer paintings are rarely lent out. Twenty-eight of these will be brought together for the first time in this unprecedented exhibition which will include masterpieces such as The Girl with a Pearl Earring (Mauritshuis, The Hague), The Geographer (Städel Museum, Frankfurt am Main), Lady Writing a Letter with her Maid (The National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin) Woman Holding a Balance (The National Gallery of Art, Washington DC) and the newly restored Girl Reading a Letter at the Open Window from the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden.
In our presentation which will explore the latest theories and views on Vermeer’s ever-fascinating and often mysterious oeuvre.
