Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (“Girl with a Pearl Earring”) manage to paint so photo-realistically — 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers.
Spanning a decade, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces; on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney; and eventually even to Buckingham Palace, to see the Queen’s Vermeer.
Sony Classics has not yet released a movie poster from Tim’s Vermeer although, an image of the poster did appear in the NY Times in early November 2013 in the Winter Movie Preview issue.
There is no Tim’s Vermeer trailer yet, either. We do bring you a clip from the movie below.
