I'm not blessed with a natural sense of curiosity, so the question of
how Dutch Master, Johannes Vermeer, painted his extraordinary
masterpieces has never kept me up at night. Tim's Vermeer made me
realize I should be kept up at night by the mysteries of the past. I
love this movie. I love that I paid close attention through it all. I
love Tim Jenison's biting humor. I love the mystery surrounding his
theory. I love that even back then, there were people doing things
behind the scenes to make the ordinary extraordinary. And I love that
we will never know if it's true.
Let me bring in my friend Heidi Sullivan to explain the meat and
potatoes. Heidi and I made our yearly trek this year to the Hamptons
together for the Hamptons Film Festival. She is an award-winning
documentarian, and much, much, much smarter than I am. She also picks
the movies we see because she is a deep-sea diver who spends time
diving into things, while I am a water skier, flying over things on the
surface level. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Anyway, in the
interest of making sure you get the whole thing, I asked her to write
the paragraph explaining Tim's theory on Vermeer's painting process.
Here is it. After you read it, you will be glad I asked her. She is
nothing if not articulate when it comes to complex issues. She went to
Harvard. Just sayin'.
"Unlike those of his contemporaries, none of Vermeer's sketchbooks have
ever been found, nor have X-rays of Vermeer paintings revealed any
pencil marks underneath the paint, Intrigued by this fact, Jenison
reasoned that Vermeer must have used a camera obscura, the 17th-century
equivalent of a camera, to obtain his hyper-realist look (as the film
points out, camera obscura literally means darkroom). To test out his
theory, and limiting himself to objects and pigments that would have
existed in Vermeer's day, Jenison positioned a mirror on a stick,
placing the mirror at an angle to reflect the image to be painted onto
his tablet. To match the color of the reflected image exactly, Jenison
continually kept his eye on the edge of the mirror. Looking between the
mirror and the reflected image he was painting, if the color he was
using was too dark or too light, the edge of the mirror was visible to
his eye. But once he mixed his colors to match exactly, the edge of the
mirror seemed to disappear his eye and the mirror functioning as a
sort of photo-sensor. It was an incredibly painstaking paint-by-numbers
process, but one that yielded uncanny results." Amazing right? But more
amazing is Tim's exploration of this question. His journey to see if he
could replicate is told with honesty, humor, and intelligence. Perhaps
best of all, it approaches an extremely difficult topic with a sense of
comic perspective. No one is curing cancer. He was responding to his
own internal boredom with a project he admits he would have abandoned
had not the cameras been rolling. There were 2,500 hours of film to
edit. A feat in itself.
There is a moment on film that I couldn't leave behind. Tim's daughter
spends her week home from college posing for the painting. She has to
be perfectly still. A contraption is strapped to her head that makes it
look like she has just broken her neck and is in traction. She has a
Diet Coke on the table, and the moment when she reaches for it and
takes a drink is priceless. Coke should use it in a commercial. And,
Tim's comment that she couldn't wait to return to school was priceless.
I have to mention Penn Jillette, who was the 'Director' of this movie.
But he really wasn't. He was the famous person whose backing allowed it
to be made. Or so it seemed. I'm not a fan anyway, so having him
associated with the film would have been a reason not to go, rather
than a reason to pay attention.
I like stick-to-itiveness in a person. I do. I can't wait to see a
Vermeer and at the Met the next time I am in New York City. I like to
be smarter than I was a few hours ago. I like to know things. For those
reasons alone, go see the Tim's Vermeer. Become smarter. Ask yourself
if Vermeer could secretly have been a paint-by-numbers kind of guy,
hiding it because he knew it was a form of cheating? If the answer is
yes, what else is possible?
