About the event

In New York the last thing Helen expects is to fall in love with  Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer. At the Frick Collection the painter of  enigmatic women and luminous light touches her bruised soul profoundly.  How can she explain a transcendent experience she herself doesn’t understand?

Sensing Helen’s craving to know more about Vermeer’s life and works,  Peter suggests they see all 35 paintings. She longs for adventure and  renewal, but the quest is filled with tensions and obstacles.

Their journeys of discovery reveal not only Vermeer’s genius but also  Peter’s deepest need; and Helen makes sense of the “New York madness”.  Both become open to the healing role of art in life.
