by Vincent Moleveld


The Rijksmuseum will extend the exhibition Vermeer opening hours to 10PM on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings for the duration of the exhibition from 10 February to 4 June 2023. More than 100,000 tickets have already been sold with a month to go until the opening of the exhibition, the largest ever gathering of Vermeer paintings. Never before has the Rijksmuseum received such demand ahead of the opening of an exhibition.

Today also sees the launch of Rijksmuseum’s digital Vermeer experience Closer to Johannes Vermeer, available for free to all Vermeer lovers around the world. Stephen Fry (English language) and Joy Delima (Dutch language) will guide online visitors to explore the artist’s work and personal life. Utilising the latest available technology, for the first time visitors will be able to zoom in on the tiniest pigment particles in pin-sharp detail via ultra-high resolution photographs of some Vermeer paintings.
