CLASSIC CINEMA: Vermeer, Beyond Time

Tue 5 September, 11:30am

Classic Cinema at The Dock presents

Classic Cinema at The Dock is very excited about presenting 'Vermeer, Beyond Time' which explores the life and work of one of the most influential artists to have ever lived.

Johannes Vermeer is one of the most loved, treasured and well-known artists in the world today ; his paintings  are instantly recognisable. How did this painter from the small city of Delft, living and working in the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th Century, who died in penury and obscurity before being rediscovered some 200 years later, come to claim our hearts and our admiration?

French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Cottet in his new documentary, Vermeer, Beyond Time, adopts an imaginative and sensitive approach to his subject focusing on the work itself but also choosing to explore Vermeer’s family circumstances, his artistic contemporaries and the wider world of the short lived Dutch Republic.

The ticket price of €5 includes tea , coffee and biscuits on arrival. Seating is unreserved for all film showings at The Dock so please state at time of booking whether you or anyone in your party has a mobility concern.
