Vermeer and Music
In cinemas worldwide on October 10 & varying dates

The National Gallery, London, is offering a fresh look at one of the most startling and fascinating artists of all – Johannes Vermeer, painter of the famous Girl with a Pearl Earring. The National Gallery has chosen to focus on Vermeer’s relationship with music. It is one of the most popular themes of Dutch painting and reveals an enormous amount about the sitter and the society they lived in. New research, revealed for the first time at this exhibition, shows how his technique and materials affected his works.

Tim Marlow, a British writer, broadcaster and art historian best known for his regular feature on Channel Five – Marlow On Style, goes beyond the exhibition to tell the entire story of Vermeer’s life – and, in doing so, shows in HD detail many other of the artist’s captivating works.
