How to Pronounce the Names of Some Dutch Painting Masters

In order to familiarize the English speaking public with the Dutch pronunciation of important Dutch painter's names, Mr. Marco Schuffelen, a friend of Essential Vermeer, has graciously created the MP3 files expressly for this page.

His site, Dutch Pronounced!, can be visited to further explore a wealth of information about Dutch language and Dutch culture in general. Also available is a CD of Dutch prounciation.
