Close to Vermeer

A staggeringly beautiful, brilliantly realized show unlikely to be repeated.


Close to Vermeer

Go behind the scenes of the largest Vermeer exhibition ever mounted, now on view at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Capturing the imagination of the art world, with glowing reviews, global press, and tickets sold out through the entirety of its run, the Rijksmuseum's Vermeer retrospective is nothing short of an historic event. This fascinating documentary is a unique opportunity to discover what goes on behind the scenes at exhibitions of this scale, from the latest techniques for determining what makes a Vermeer truly a Vermeer, to new discoveries while searching for the master’s paintings around the world.

"One of the most thrilling exhibitions ever conceived." – Laura Cumming, The Guardian

"The show is just about perfect: perfectly argued, perfectly paced, as clear and uncontaminated as the light streaming through those Delft windows." – Jason Farago, The New York Times
