Play trailer

Suzanne Raes / NL, 2023 / 79 min.

Award-winning filmmaker Suzanne Raes follows the curators and others involved with putting together the big Vermeer exhibition in the Rijksmuseum. A film about the love of painting, and the anatomy of a genius.

poster Dicht bij Vermeer (Suzanne Raes, NL 2023)
Much has been written about Johannes Vermeer, the artist responsible for iconic paintings and popular favourites such as The Milkmaid and Girl with a Pearl Earring, but we know relatively little. His small oeuvre is pretty much all he left behind. Globally renowned Vermeer scholar and flamboyant curator at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum Gregor Weber takes us up close to Vermeer. During the year before his retirement, he works towards his ultimate dream: to put on the biggest Vermeer exhibition ever.
