Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in art: How did 17th-century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring, c. 1665) manage to paint so photo-realistically 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers.
