De Young Museum docent and lecturer Marsha Holm will present a program entitled, "Girl with the Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis" from 10 a.m. to noon, Wednesday, March 27 at the Fremont Main Library. Holm will discuss a selection of paintings by the leading artists of the Dutch Golden Age. On exhibit at the de Young Museum in San Francisco from January 26 - June 2, this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, including Vermeer's timeless masterpiece, is made possible only because of the current renovations and expansion of the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague, Netherlands. Holm will include a slide presentation with her lecture.
As a popular speaker with Fremont audiences, Holm has been a docent with the San Francisco museum since 1979. In addition to giving tours in all areas of the museum's collections, she has served in several administrative capacities, including chair of the latest training session for new docents, a three-year program. She has also assisted in training docents at Blackhawk Museum, Oakland Museum, and the San Jose Museum of Art.
Admission is free. This program is sponsored by the Olive Hyde Art Guild.
