NCM Fathom Events and BY Experience are coming together again to celebrate some of the greatest artists of all time in a series of special one night events. For the first time ever, celebrate the art and life of Johannes Vermeer’s subjects as he captured the 17th century in Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure on screen only on Thursday, October 10th at 7:30 PM (local time) in select cinemas nationwide.
The National Gallery, London, is offering a fresh look at one of the most startling and fascinating artists of all-time, Johannes Vermeer. Vermeer is most popularly known as the painter of the Girl with a Pearl Earring. Vermeer painted little more than 30 works that still exist, and the National Gallery has chosen to focus on his art in relation to music. Music was one of the most popular themes of Dutch painting and revealed an enormous amount about the sitter and the society they lived in.
The event goes beyond the exhibition to tell the entire story of Vermeer's life and, in doing so, shows in detail many other of the artist's captivating works. For those inspired by the 2003 film, Girl with a Pearl Earring, this new cinematic exploration will take their enjoyment and fascination of Vermeer’s life and work to a new level.
