In the Mauritshuis, 2018. I was guiding four clients. A lady was keenly eavesdropping and I invited her in for the next short subject, a talk about the Goldfinch by Fabritius.
This was her emailed response a day later:

„Dear Drs. Kaldenbach, I want to thank you for including me “for two minutes” today during your tour session. It was very nice of you to perceive my interest in knowing more about The Goldfinch painting. The information was extremely interesting to me. I have been to a few museums during my visit to Amsterdam and paid for tour guide’s services. However, I learned more from you in those two minutes than an hour with others. Your kindness to include me was appreciated and want you to know your knowledge about art is inspiring.
My best, Jil Jensen.”
