Vermeer: The Greatest Exhibition
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 exhibition of the century on the big 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 35 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.
“This is more than an exhibition. It’s a miracle.”
“Even Vermeer probably never saw this many of his paintings together”
Pieter Roelofs, head of paintings and sculpture for Rijksmuseum
“There will never be another Vermeer show as great as this one”
