Author Kaldenbach lecturing in front of Vermeer

Vermeer, View of Delft, 1660-1661

The Mauritshuis Royal Collection of Paintings in The Hague, Holland is one of the great art treasure houses of the world. Small but exquisite, comparable with the Frick Collection in NYC and the Villa Borghese museum in Rome, it exhibits only the best of the best. Vermeer, Rembrandt, Potter, Hals, Flemish Primitives…and more.

“The lectures continue to inform and entertain…I’m already getting rave reviews”. Sarah, a private art group now taking their 7th consecutive class with Drs Kaldenbach. September 2020.
