On each episode of 'Frans Hals Paintings–The Podcast', American-Dutch art historian and Hals scholar John Bezold investigates and discusses the oeuvre of this celebrated artist from the Dutch Golden Age. Eternally overshadowed by his more famous painting peers, Rembrandt and Vermeer; this podcast seeks to discover–and share–why Frans Hals' paintings, and their brushwork, have captivated viewers for centuries.
Coming Soon: Frans Hals Paintings—The Podcast
'Frans Hals Paintings–The Podcast', is a new show hosted by John Bezold focusing on the c. 222 Hals paintings as physical objects, who each portrays, and their appreciation over time. The podcast discusses one painting per episode, in no set order. Some episodes even confront these artworks in their (mostly Dutch) galleries and museums, to contextualize and share the joy, of viewing Frans Hals' paintings in person.
