New documentary on the art of Johannes Vermeer

Johannes Vermeer's The Music Lesson

I just read about what looks like a very cool        documentary that explores the art of Johannes  Vermeer.  The  film chronicles the efforts of Tim  Jenison to prove that Vermeer used mirrors and lenses to create the photo realism of his paintings.  In particular, Jenison focuses on Vermeer's The Music Lesson, going to the extent of creating a replica of Vermeer's studio and the painting.
