Real Vermeer, A

Real Vermeer, A

A talented artist decides to take revenge on art critics by creating works attributable to his idol Johannes Vermeer.

Based on the life of Han van Meegeren, an exceptionally talented but narcissistic painter clashes with the art critics, who are themselves in love with fashionable movements such as impressionism and expressionism. He decides therefore to take revenge by creating ‘new’ paintings of his great idol Vermeer.
