Vermeer in the Rijksmuseum

In spring 2023, the Rijksmuseum will dedicate a retrospective to 17th-century master Johannes Vermeer for the first time in its history. With loans from all over the world, this promises to be the largest Vermeer exhibition ever. Vermeer's work is best known for his hushed, introverted indoor scenes, his unprecedented use of bright, colourful light and his convincing illusionism. With about 35 paintings, Vermeer left behind a remarkably small oeuvre. Because his paintings are among the top pieces in collections and museums around the world, his work is only lent out exceptionally. It is therefore very special that masterpieces such as Girl with a pearl earring, Writing woman with servant and, for example Woman with the scale now on display. In addition, works never before on public display in the Netherlands will be shown, including the newly restored Letter reading woman at the open window. Barry Heinrichs will tell you everything you need to know about Vermeer's work and about the exhibition specifically in preparation for a visit in a lecture.
