In the spring of 2023, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam opened its doors to the largest Vermeer  exhibition in history. By the time I found out about it and tried to book tickets the show was completely sold out.

It’s not the same, of course, but this award-winning film offers you the chance to experience the exhibition of the century on screen.

With loans from across the world, this major retrospective brings 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 37 works.

This 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 to discover the genius of Vermeer and his fascinating and mysterious life.

The director is David Bickerstaff and the film is narrated by Robert Lindsay
