Tim's Vermeer

Documentary, Art 1h 20m 2013

AroView: Science and art coalesce in this extraordinary story of Texan tech pioneer and obsessive polymath Tim Jenison’s attempt to perfectly reproduce a famous Vermeer painting by hand.

With no prior experience as a painter, he instead tests a theory about how the 17th Century master might have managed to paint in photo-realistic detail 150 years before the invention of photography. Tim’s friend and illusionist Penn Jillette and British art icon David Hockney are among the astounded onlookers.
