Part of the Program: Tuesday Nights at the Movies

Schalcken the Painter

7:30 pm
9:30 pm
Woodmere Art Museum

Based on Sheridan Le Fanu’s 1839 ghost story, director Leslie Megahey’s Gothic film pulls the audience into the shadowy fantasy world of real-life painters Gerrit Dou and Godfried Schalcken. Paintings by Schalcken, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and others offer visual inspiration and set the stage for tantalizing mystery, impossible love, strange attraction, and spectral art.Introduced by Nicole Cook, PhD, The Leiden Collection, New York
