Synopsis

Compelling mystery and the power of great art are intertwined in “Brush with Fate.” It is based on Susan Vreeland’s “Girl in Hyacinth Blue,” which tracks a “lost” Vermeer masterpiece through multiple narratives spanning more than three centuries.

A mysterious, priceless painting lies at the heart of “Brush with Fate.” “Girl in Hyacinth Blue” was painted in the 17th century, and since then has been bought in passion, sold in desperation, and stolen during the Nazi occupation of Holland (where this video was filmed). Each part of this story traces the circumstances of those who have owned the painting, and how it was passed on to others, up to the present time.

Dove Review

Some who owned the painting gave it up out of love, others out of greed. In more than one situation, the painting was the only thing of beauty in a person’s life; each person loved it for it’s beauty. Some relinquished out of necessity and love of their family.
