Close to Vermeer Screening and Talkback at The Nick

June 18, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

As part of our ReelTalk Docuseries, we will be hosting a post-screening talkback after Close To Vermeer on Sunday, June 18 at 3:00 p.m. The discussion will be led by Michael Neumeister, curator for the Columbia Museum of Art.

About the film: Much has been written, but little is known about Johannes Vermeer, painter of iconic paintings and crowd pleasers such as The Milkmaid and Girl with a Pearl Earring. His small oeuvre is almost everything he left behind. Close to Vermeer follows Gregor Weber, a globally renowned Vermeer expert and flamboyant curator at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. In the year before he retires, he works on his big dream: the largest Vermeer exhibition ever. Together with Weber, a number of Vermeer enthusiasts and experts go in search of what truly makes a Vermeer a Vermeer. Through new discoveries and by dissecting the work layer by layer, this film brings us closer to the painter to understand the decisions he made and the steps in his oeuvre.
