Feature documentary following the quest of Texan inventor Tim Jenison to uncover the methods used by 17th century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer in his art. Vermeer is most famous for his painting 'Girl With a Pearl Earring' and has puzzled many analysts with his ability to achieve a photo-realistic effect in his work. Jenison sets out to find an answer to the mystery - a quest that takes him to Delft in the Netherlands, where Vermeer produced his work; Yorkshire, to talk to influential English artist David Hockney; and to Buckingham Palace, to view a Vermeer painting owned by the royal family.
