Sold out Jan Vermeer exhibition Amsterdam goes online

DW: “When the large-scale exhibition of works by the Dutch master Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) opened on February 10 at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, all 450,000 tickets quickly sold out. The museum is showing 28 of the 37 or so existing works by the painter from Delft until June 4, 2023. This is the first that time that so many Vermeer paintings are on display together at the same time, and it might be the last, given how expensive the works are. This is also likely why the show has attracted so many visitors. After the initial batch of tickets sold out, the museum extended opening hours and offered more chances to view the works of the Dutch Master. Those tickets sold out quickly too, and even briefly crashed the museum’s website. Now, the museum is offering a free, interactive online exhibition called “Closer to Johannes Vermeer.” It’s narrated by English actor and writer Stephen Fry and allows visitors to get closer to the life and times of Vermeer, even if they can’t see the works in person.”
