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 realistically 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory takes him to Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, and eventually to Buckingham Palace to see the Queen’s Vermeer. Directed by magicians Penn and Teller, this film explores the boundaries between technology and art.
