Johannes Vermeer [1632 -1675] is a fascinating painter whose life and works are explored here in amazing detail. Filmed in London's National Gallery, New York's Met and other art houses in the USA and the Netherlands, this stunning film explores a collection of Vermeer's finest pieces and delivers a detailed biography of the artist, his life and times. A study of 17th century musical pursuits is skilfully blended with the art of Vermeer and his contemporaries. Live music from the Academy of Ancient Music serves as a beautiful soundtrack to the breath-taking sight of Vermeer's paintings. Tim Marlow, art historian and broadcaster, gives us his interpretation of the art and delivers a first-rate biography of the artist. He invites comments from leading authorities of fine art and from Tracy Chevalier, whose best-selling novel, inspired by Vermeer, was made into the block buster movie, Girl with a Pearl Earring.
