Art historian Drs. Kees Kaldenbach lives and works in Amsterdam and is specialized in European art. As a teacher and public educator he uses lectures and multimedia technology to present a rich tapestry of image information on European art history both for the public at large and for fellow art historians. He has published widely and has designed an important website (2000+ items) on the art of the 17th century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, as well as on other Delft artists. As a leading expert Kees has collaborated in fine arts television programs by networks such as BBC2, BBC3, CNN, DKR Denmark,NPS Dutch TV, NTV Japan. He has also worked with radio programme makers (RNW Radio Holland). Kaldenbach has also written and published books and many articles on the history of art. With his Amsterdam-based company Private Art Tours, Kees has lectured during well over 400 art tours to groups ranging from 1 to 20 persons. He has also successfully addressed larger audiences. Keesí main topics of discussion are the Dutch painters Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn and Vincent van Gogh. He has also spoken on the topics of Dutch urban architecture and the history of local institutions.

Experience the wonderful city of Amsterdam (or the other major historic cities: Haarlem, Leiden, The Hague, Delft, Gouda, Rotterdam in the Netherlands).

You will both relax and educate yourself while strolling along and talking an art historian. I will take you on a wonderful private cultural walking tour - or I will drive you to any of these cities. Other towns are also possible: Alkmaar, Edam, Monnickendam.

High quality, highly informed conversation and yet in a plain, accessible language (whatever language you choose to speak - I am fluent in Dutch, English or German. My French and Italian are limited.)

We will touch many cultural bases: fine art, history and historic architecture. I will discuss the strong institutions of the Town Government, the Civic Guards, the old age homes and hospitals.
However, I can also switch to varied modern topics: For Amsterdam these are the impact of the Theo van Gogh assassination; the landslide nationalist election results; Gay Amsterdam; major changes in the Red Light District; Writers in literary Amsterdam; Development of the harbor area; Amsterdam architectural city planning from 1600-1880-1920-1950-2011

You may also love the Rotterdam harbor, or opt for the great Vermeers and political institutions in The Hague; the stained glass of Gouda. The world famous printing presses of Leiden; the cheese market in Alkmaar.

You may want to arrange this VIP treatment for business contacts or friends. This art historian guide will provide a memorable experience.

As a high-level international tour guide, I offer pleasant tailor-made private tours for small groups. Having an academic background in Art History and teaching, my presentation is both in-depth and very communicative, thus open to a wide audience. I prefer to guide small and select groups to museum visits and to walks...
