Fascinating visuals
Patricia L. Galaskas | 11/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After the recent Metropolitan Museum exhibit featuring Vermeer's Milkmaid, I got interested in reading more about the artists. My librarian suggested this video and I liked it so much I decided to purchase a copy for my personal library. The analyses of composition and the graphics they've created to describe Vermeers painting techniques are really great . . . and, unlike some art historians, those interviewed here don't go off the deep end in their interpretations.

An Extraordinary Painter, An Extraordinary Film!!
Lesser Knowns | San Mateo, CA, USA | 12/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary is tied together nicely with perfect narrator tone, extraordinary paintings and lovely, fitting music. I knew I would be mesmerized by the images on the screen, and the story engages like no other. It was an interesting piece to learn more about Vermeer's paintings and his technique."
