Title: Vermeer: Master of Light
Movie ID: VT6259
Movie Number: 6259
Description: Vermeer: Master of Light, is a visual quest in search of "what makes a Vermeer a Vermeer." It is a journey of discovery, guiding the viewer through an exploration of Vermeer's paintings and examining the "secrets" of his technique. Each frame of the film emulates the subtlety of Vermeer, with particular emphasis placed on lighting and composition. Utilizing x-ray analysis, infrared reflectography, and the power of computer technology, the program investigates what lies beneath the surface of the paintings to unveil captivating insights into the master's work. The paintings of Johannes Vermeer are intriguing as much for their subjects as for the poetic ways in which these are portrayed. Vermeer's use of light and color, proportion and scale mesmerizes the viewer. His everyday scenes are imbued with nuances of reflection and meaning that are at once familiar and mysterious. This film celebrates one of the most extraordinary painters in the history of art.
