“This is more than an exhibition. It’s a miracle.”  - The Guardian

This new Exhibition on Screen film invites audiences to a private view of the exhibition, accompanied by the director of the Rijksmuseum and the curators of the show. A truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! As well as bringing Vermeer’s works together, both the Rijksmuseum and the Mauritshuis in the Hague have conducted research into Vermeer’s artistry, his artistic choices and motivations for his compositions, as well as the creative process behind his paintings.

For the first time, the recently restored painting of "Girl Reading a Letter at the Open Window" will be displayed.

“We would not have thought it possible that so many museums are willing to lend their masterpieces. With this exhibition we can introduce a new generation to Vermeer’s paintings…” - Taco Dibbits, Director of the Rijksmuseum

“Vermeer’s world is meditative, deliberative, still; the film is too." - The Times UK
