A unique film that will be screened at Warsaw’s Muranów cinema June 29 at 4 p.m. will take viewers on a tour of the Vermeer and Music exhibition at the National Gallery in London.

The Vermeer and Music film introduces viewers to the work and history of Dutch master Johannes Vermeer, who is probably best known for the painting “Girl with a Pearl Earring” Vermeer’s paintings will be shown from different angles and as viewers explore the exhibition rooms, they will learn about the history of the Dutch master’s work and hear experts analyzing his most famous paintings along with his style and technique. Shot in high resolution, the film also attempts to uncover facts from the somewhat mysterious life of the painter.

The National Gallery in London has used music, one of Vermeer’s favorite themes, to link all the featured pictures together.

Vermeer (1632-75) was one of the most famous Dutch Renaissance painters. His work stands out with a unique range of harmonious colors and an astonishing use of dispersed light. Vermeer mainly painted genre scenes, but he also left behind many portraits, especially of women depicted in domestic, interior settings. Little is known about the painter himself and his life is largely shrouded in mystery.
