Another great presentation by Sabry Amroussi that showed us highlights of the treasures in the Maurithuis Museum plus some nice history of how the museum was established. Sabry's knowledge of art is amazing as his enjoyment of it is infectious. The opportunity to look at the detailed scans of the paintings is wonderful. I am 100% in agreement with him that Vermeer's View of Delft is one the world's greatest paintings. I have never been to the Mauritshuis but I got to see it when it was loaned to the National Gallery of Art in Washington in 1995.
Sabry never fails to deliver knowledgable and engaging presentations on the art of the Netherlands.
Sabry Amroussi does a wonderful job of walking us through the history of the Museum and than the rooms of the museum in photos. It is a close to being there as you can get. His ability to have hi resolution images that he could zoom in on actually enhanced the lecture beyond what you could do in person. We were able to really zero in on brush strokes and techniques. It was very illuminating to the painter in me. The History and analysis off the imagery was also delivered well and very compelling. In the end I felt that my time was very well spent!
New insights aplenty about a very familiar work, and plenty of enthusiasm in the very popular Sabry. His seminars are outstanding.
