The Delft of Vermeer

Exhibition: 10 February - 4 June 2023

Delft in the seventeenth century was a hotbed of talent, a place where important innovations took place. In Delft Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) developed into a world-class painter. For the first time in the history Museum Prinsenhof, the life of this world-famous Delft master is the sole focus of an exhibition. Masterpieces by Delft contemporaries are displayed alongside Delft pottery, Delft tapestries, archival objects and autograph documents. The exhibition illustrates the rich artistic, intellectual and social climate of seventeenth-century Delft.

The Delft of Vermeer is organized to coincide with the landmark Vermeer exhibition at the Rijksmuseum.
