Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting

Another great lecture on the recent exhibition at National Gallery of Art in Washington. 

This time, curator Arthur Wheelock spends first half on Gerard ter Borch, Gerrit Dou, Pieter de Hooch and other contemporaries of Vermeer. I’ve never heard of any of them. 
Then he talks about how the latter was so different from the formers. 
I found that he’s a great presenter. Very lucid and a good sense of humour. Rare quality among art critics, historians and academics. 

As the subtitle says, this one offers ‘New Insights and Discoveries.”
