Much has been written, but little is known about Johannes Vermeer, painter of iconic paintings and crowd pleasers such as The Milkmaid and Girl with a Pearl Earring. His small oeuvre is almost everything he left behind. This revealing documentary follows Gregor Weber, a globally renowned Vermeer expert and flamboyant curator at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam the year before he retires, as he prepares to mount the largest Vermeer exhibition ever.
“Close to Vermeer is a high-level art documentary that extends far beyond the Sphinx of Delft.” — Berend Jan Bockting, de Volkskrant
