A Private, Guided Tour featuring Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC

The newly displayed Johannes Vermeer paintings at the National Gallery of Art are the perfect place to start taking a closer look at Vermeer’s rare and exquisite works. Your expert art historian guide will lead you or your group through works by Vermeer and other masters of Genre Painting at the NGA. We’ll provide historical context, biographical information on Vermeer and his contemporaries, and much more. Sometimes it is better to focus your attention on a specific style or time period and gain a much deeper understanding of that particular subject, and the Vermeer paintings at the NGA in DC offer the perfect opportunity to slow down and enjoy. This private tour is catered entirely to you, meaning you can set the pace and decide on which works of art you’d like to focus.
