Vermeer: The Greatest Exhibition

Directed by David Bickerstaff

Tickets £10

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 award-winning 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, Woman Holding a Balance and the newly-restored Girl Reading a Letter at the Open Window.

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, his artistry and artistic choices, the motivations for his compositions, as well as the creative processes behind his paintings.
