Screen/Society--Dinner and a Movie Series--"Tim's Vermeer"
(Raymond Joseph Teller, 2014, 80 min, USA, in English, Color, Blu-Ray)
Inventor Tim Jenison attempts to understand and replicate the painting techniques of 17th Century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer that are considered one of the greatest art mysteries of all time. As Jenison takes on this massive research project, the audience follows him on his journey through Holland, Yorkshire, and even to the Buckingham Palace in search of the secret of the renowned artist.
-- "You don't have to be an art fan to enjoy Tim's Vermeer, just someone who asked at least once in their life, 'how did they do that?'" -- An Online Universe
