Not much is known about Jan Vermeer.  He only produced around 35 works of art.  Yet they made him immortal.  He was born in Delft and never left the town. He married there, worked as an art-dealer and died in debt. He bequeathed us a world of light, ambiguous interiors and insightful portraits.

Michael Gill delves into the master’s world and talks about the camera obscura and Vermeer’s interest in science and cartography.  Together with experts, he explores Vermeer’s secrets of perspective, space, allegory and symbolic relationships in his works.

Extras include an information booklet, picture gallery and trailers.
Available in English and German languages.

Art Lives, from Arthaus, is a powerful and arresting series of documentaries on artists and art movements released for the first time on DVD in the English language.

Directed by Michael Gill
