In January and February, three events are happening in the Metropolitan Museum of Art related to Dutch art.

Gallery Talk

On Wednesday, January 21 and Tuesday, February 10, the Gallery Talk “Moments in Dutch Life” takes place, both from 11 to 12 PM and free with museum admission. The talk, held by Maria Rhor, gives a “glimpse inside moments of daily life and celebrations in seventeenth-century Dutch painting.” The events take place at Gallery 534 (Vélez Blanco Patio).

The Observant Eye

Also on Friday, January 23, “The Pregnant Pause: The Story of One Moment in an Early Netherlandish Painting” takes place (from 7 to 8 PM), as part of “The Observant Eye” event series.

Spend an hour contemplating a single work of art in the Met’s collection through close observation and deep discussion. All are welcome to join our experiment in observation and perception in the European Paintings Galleries, 1250–1800.

Each session is limited to twenty-five participants. Please use the Observant Eye Registration Form to register. Email observanteye@metmuseum.org for more information.

Free with Museum admission, but registration is required. The session is led by Monica Mariño, Assistant Museum Educator, MMA.
