Sharing ideas that do good

Using a mirror to copy a masterpiece

post-image
Inventor Tim Jenison attempted to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) manage to paint so photo-realistically. So he painted his daughter Claire in the same pose with a comparator mirror and the similarity to the original is striking. Now on display at MONA in Hobart as Claire with a Pearl Earring along with an exhibit showing the technique he used.
What do you think?
