London's Master Pieces: The Guitar Player by Vermeer, Kenwood House
One of Vermeer's typical blissful images of a young girl in peaceful interior, and a masterwork of his mature and most loved period, this work can be admired without the crowds and completely free. Join us to learn more about this work and master artist Vermeer.

Linden House, Upper Mall, London W6 9TA, UK
About the Event
In partnership with Linden House Social Calendar we will be diving into some of the world's greatest artworks, which are right here in London and can be visited free of charge. Learn about who made them, where and why, but also gain access into what makes these works special, different and what to look out for!
Set in wonderful grounds and with a small but incredibly strong collection, going to Kenwood House is worth the trip. Completely free and with a Vermeer so precious it didn't even make it to the sold out blockbuster Vermeer exhibition in Amsterdam this year!
Please join us for a talk on this master of the peaceful images, where life seems slow and simple, and light bounces off in ways you never even think possible. We will introduce the master and his craft, the women in his life and his enduring legacy.
