Johannes Vermeer, painter of Girl with a Pearl Earring, painted little more than thirty works that still exist. The National Gallery has chosen to focus on his art in relation to music, one of the most popular themes of Dutch painting. The cinema event provides a comprehensive biography of Vermeer and shows in detail many of the artist's great works.
Hosted by art historian Tim Marlow, Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure ventures beyond the gallery with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
