Goltzius and the Pelican Company

Goltzius and the Pelican Company

British auteur Peter Greenaway’s latest oddity, the elaborately titled Goltzius and the Pelican Company , states its intentions in its opening minutes. A man dressed in immaculate period costume, replete with imposing coiffured barnet and an almost absurd European accent introduces himself directly to camera. This is Hendrik Goltzius, a Dutch printmaker being played by Ramsey Nasr, a Dutch writer and actor who was a poet laureate as recently as 2013.

We traded in words, Words in books, Words on the stage,

This is the second instalment – following 2007’s Nightwatching – in Greenaway’s Dutch Masters sequence. His incoming Hieronymous Bosch film, due in 2016 to mark the 500th anniversary of Bosch’s death
