Film Night: Maarten de Kroon, Mysterious Masterpiece Other events...
Join us for a free, special one-night-only screening of MYSTERIOUS MASTERPIECE: Cold Case Torrentius, a documentary film by Maarten de Kroon in cooperation with Jeanne van der Horst.

The film investigates the incredible case of the 17th century Dutch painter Johannes Torrentius and presents the hallucinatory story of a libertine and painter of genius whose one remaining painting is now part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum.

The painting, a wooden circular panel, was used for a long time as the lid on a raisin barrel in a grocery shop in Enschede, a town in Holland. Even after extensive research his Still life with a bridle , remains a mystery.

Mysterious Masterpiece re-opens the case to examine what is known of the painting and what extensive research done by the Rijksmuseum shows. What medium did Torrentius use? Did he use a camera obscura, and if so: how did he work with it? What about his ties with the Rosicrucians? An international team of witness specialists are consulted to get closer to Torrentius’ mysteries.

Join us for a drink after the film.

Running time: 67 minutes
