Kiltacular Posted January 31, 2014 Share Posted January 31, 2014 Two recommendations: 1) On Feb. 12, NOVA/PBS will air "Great Cathedral Mystery" about Brunelleschi and the building of the "Il Duomo" in 15th century Florence. I've read a book on this...fascinating story. National Geographic had an article this month introducing the subject and mentioning the upcoming NOVA. 2) Today, "Tim's Vermeer" is released. This is a documentary about a former software guy's obsession with how Vermeer might have painted. It is going to be cool. Includes Penn Jillette and directed by Teller. L.A Times yesterday: "'Tim's Vermeer' takes an engineer's approach to painting" http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/culture/la-et-cm-tims-vermeer-penn-and-teller-20140129,0,2717643.story#axzz2s0cPAyqu WSJ also had an article yesterday.
