Art historian Drs Kees Kaldenbach will take you along on a tailor-made personal museum tour to 1) Amsterdam, or 2) to the great collection in Otterlo. Drs Kaldenbach prefers small groups, not exceeding 10 persons. You may or may not choose to start with a private home lecture.

Imagine being the privileged guest of honor at the home of art historian Kees Kaldenbach. While sipping a fragrant cup of coffee or tea, you listen to his personalized (private or small-group) lecture and discussion on the astounding visual wonders that Vincent van Gogh has bestowed upon us. Then we take a 15 minute tram trip to the museum. In the Vincent van Gogh museum Mr Kaldenbach will point out and explain the visual wonders of Vincent van Gogh's technique; contents, brushstrokes, details, composition, color.

Thus you will be the beneficiary of tailor made art history.

Prices quoted are for the Amsterdam situation.

- Lectures in Dutch, English or German (+ translations possible into Japanese or Chinese) are given in plain, accessible language.
- Prices upon request.
- If a ride to Otterlo (Kröller-Müller national park and museum) is requested Mr. Kaldenbach will make you a separate offer: he is able to fit 3 persons in his private compact car. Clients are requested to sign a legal waiver. A larger minibus can be hired.
The Kröller-Müller Museum is located in an amazing secluded nature park near Arnhem in the central-east of The Netherlands and cannot be conveniently reached by public transport.

At the Kröller-Müller Museum, Mr. Kaldenbach will give subdued pointers on ways of seeing and understanding paintings. This museum houses another large collection of astonishing Van Gogh paintings including 'The Langlois Bridge' and 'Wheatfield with a Reaper' and other works by his contemporaries and modern artists.

- You may also wish to arrange this VIP treatment as a gift for business contacts or friends. I will take care of a memorable made-to-measure experience.

Before going to Otterlo we may start with a lecture. Optional preparatory lecture time is about 1 hour. Travel time is about 1 1/2 hours in perfect traffic, and one needs a car to get to this remote nature park. Kröller-Müller Museum visit time takes about 1 to 2 hours. You may also visit the famous secluded sculpture garden outside the building - this is optional but highly recommended. Add one extra hour. Package deal is possible.
