Recreating Vermeer’s paintings: article in Vanity Fair

I just read this article in Vanity Fair about a huge experiment to recreate what may have been the Dutch painter Vermeer’s secret weapon to create such incredibly photo-realistic paintings all the way back in the 1600′s.

This article covers Vermeer, painting, photography, camera obscura, optics, Penn and Teller, digital image analysis – the whole 9 yards!   Very fascinating.
