In the spring of 2023, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam opened the largest Vermeer exhibition in history, selling out within days of going on sale. This film offers you the chance to experience the once-in-a-lifetime exhibition 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, and Woman Holding a Balance, among so many others.
