Tickets are on sale now from participating cinemas: www.exhibitiononscreen.com
Johannes Vermeer is the third artist profiled in 2013 as part of the acclaimed cinema-exclusive event series EXHIBITION: GREAT ON SCREEN. VERMEER AND MUSIC: THE ART OF LOVE AND LEISURE direct from the National Gallery, London, will screen for a strictly limited season from Saturday 19 October in Australian cinemas.
The National Gallery, London, is offering a fresh look at one of the most startling and fascinating artists of all – Johannes Vermeer, painter of the famous Girl with a Pearl Earring. The National Gallery has chosen to focus on Vermeer’s relationship with music. It is one of the most popular themes of Dutch painting and reveals an enormous amount about the sitter and the society they lived in. New research, revealed for the first time at this exhibition, shows how his technique and materials affected his works.
Tim Marlow goes beyond the exhibition to tell the entire story of Vermeer’s life – and, in doing so, shows in fabulous HD detail many other of the artist’s captivating works. For those inspired by the 2003 film, Girl with a Pearl Earring, starring Colin Firth and Scarlett Johansson, this new, cinematic exploration will take their enjoyment and fascination of Vermeer’s life and work to a new level.
