Tim's Vermeer

A successful innovator in the computer graphics industry, Tim Jenison seeks to understand how Vermeer was able to craft such photographic mirroring paintings in the 17th Century by attempting to create a perfect reproduction of the Flemish master's The Music Lesson. Directed by Penn and Teller, Tim's Vermeer is a fascinating documentary that, though coming in at a short clip, goes through equal painstaking measures to document its subject's mammoth quest, even if it does begin to lose steam during the painting process.
