Excellent, in-depth discussion of 2 of the most important painters of the Dutch Golden Age. I may not always agree with Sabry, but he always makes his points with an expert's knowledge and real passion. This was an especially fine seminar.
thought it was very good. Esp. enjoyed how our lecturer showed high res close-up of brush stroke techniques. wish he had shared a bit more info on the history of the netherlands at that time. Think it might have added to my enjoyment. Otherwise I was very satisfied.
I have done two of Sabry's seminars as he's incredible with the amount of information he packs into this. Tons of detail, back story, hidden meanings that you would never get seeing these pieces in person. Truly exceptional.
Knowing that Sabry is an expert Rembrandt as well as a fan himself, I was looking forward to his presentation of these two superstars of the Golden Age. I was not disappointed. Sabry broke the presentation down into a logical structure and made his case for each, using his expertise and fabulous high-res images to get us inside each crack of the paintings. 90 minutes went by in a flash...I would have happily done 90 more! An excellent presentation and truly the best of all of Sabry's that I've done.
Another fabulous, intricate, story-filled conversation with Mr. Amroussi! Can't wait for the next!
