Tim's Vermeer

 Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, wondered how 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer painted so photo-realistically before photography? So he set out to test his theory. The project took eight years and took him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen.

Here's the trailer for the Penn & Teller 2013 film about the project:
