‘Even Vermeer probably never saw this many of his paintings together’, said Pieter Roelofs (head of paintings and sculptures for Rijksmuseum) about the largest Vermeer exhibition in history. The exhibition sold out within days of going on sale. This documentary 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 and WOMAN HOLDING A BALANCE. In all, 28 of his surviving 37 works.
