This art tour presents a richly unfolding panorama of Dutch society during the 17th century — an era of unparalleled wealth, power and cultural confidence. Artists sensitively observed the beauty of the visible world, transforming it, with great skill, into vivid and compelling paintings. Their subjects ranged from intense portraits and dramatic seascapes to tranquil scenes of domestic life and careful studies of fruit and flowers. We will also visit "Rembrandt-Velázquez” Dutch & Spanish Masters. Dialogues on reality and eternity, religion and beauty (temporary exhibition until the 19th of January 2020). Rembrandt and Velázquez are the two greatest 17th century masters in their respective countries One came from the Protestant Netherlands, the other from Catholic Spain. The Rijksmuseum and the Museo Nacional del Prado are bringing these masters together for the first time. Duration: 1 hour - 15 min coffee break (optional) - 1 hour. In total, almost 2,5 hours
My name is Hanna. With love for art, I've founded Private Art Education in 2015, I teach art history and continue creating educational programs that inspire. My speciality is European art form the Renaissance to Contemporary, and I am able to navigate freely within these subjects. This in-depth history of art knowledge helps me to answer almost all your art questions. I graduated from Christie's and Sotheby's Institute of Art, both based in London and both from famous auction houses. Art business is also one of my fields, I promote art collecting and find art pieces on clients' requests. I teach art history and art business online. Perhaps the same as you, I intensively traveled the world, studied various cultures and lived in London for 6 years, now based in Haarlem (near Amsterdam)

RIJKSMUSEUM Since this amazing museum has so much art treasures to see, we will ask you, if you have some preferences in the artists, mediums or, perhaps, particular story-lines. The great exhibition is taking place at Rijksmuseum until January 19 2020 - Rembrandt-Velázquez: Dutch and Spanish Masters. It would be my pleasure to include this must-see outstanding selection of paintings by Dutch and Spanish masters of the 17th century.
