Author Kaldenbach lecturing in front of Vermeer

Live Art Classes, webinars in times of Corona / Covid 19 expert led by Kaldenbach, cyberdocent


At the moment, most museums in the world are either closed or are very limited in entry. That is a rough, time for us art-lovers. However, this is also the perfect moment to learn more about a a number of western painters, art schools, era’s etc. I can guide you digitally through many, many art museums on Zoom. With the help of my 10.000+ image bank of my own photographs.

I am also open to your suggestions about the theme or artists you wish to discuss into in an online class.

Take this unique chance to learn more about culture and art and briefly “get out” of your home.

Join me and learn more about art history, a painter or era. Just make an appointment for a day and a time. Enjoy your own class or join friends/family/colleagues. Send me an email at, so we can schedule a time and date. This is your art history platform!


Feedback, 31 July 2020, from Carnegie museums of Pittsburgh after my class on Van Gogh: “The class was a great success, and we would love to work on scheduling another class with you featuring Vermeer and Rembrant.”
