Obsessed with discovering the secret of Johannes Vermeer's photo-realistic artwork, inventor Tim Jenison embarks on an illuminating eight-year journey that takes him not only to the Dutch city of Delft, where the celebrated master created some of his best-known works, but also to the North coast of Yorkshire for a conversation with artist David Hockney, and to Buckingham Palace to bask in the full glory of a Vermeer masterpiece. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
