Dicht bij Vermeer (Close to Vermeer)

Please note that this film is in English and Dutch, with Dutch subtitles.

Much has been written but little is known about Johannes Vermeer, the creator of much-beloved, iconic paintings such as THE MILKMAID and GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING. His small oeuvre is pretty much all he left behind. DICHT BIJ VERMEER follows Gregor Weber, world-renowned Vermeer expert and flamboyant curator of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. In the year before he retires, he is working on his big dream: the biggest Vermeer exhibition ever. Together with Weber, several Vermeer enthusiasts and experts set out to find what makes a Vermeer truly a Vermeer. Through new discoveries and by dissecting the work layer by layer, we get closer and closer to the painter, allowing us to dissect the decisions he made and understand his oeuvre.

Suzanne Raes, Netherlands, 2023, 79 min. English & Dutch spoken, Dutch subtitles.
