Can an untrained person paint a Vermeer?
This is a wonderful and quirky film about a very smart inventor with a truly unique Johannes Vermeer obsession. Maybe one of the best documentaries concerning art and optics (and especially the way the lens and eventually photography has completely changed painting and drawing forever). David Hockney is consulted in this film because of his brilliant book Secret Knowledge which explores how optics changed painting forever (and thus dispelling most of the mythical “great painters” in art history).
