Here you will find the Vermeer radio MP3 file in high quality, 40MB in streaming audio. You will need a broadband internet connection.
The first voice you hear is that of Bailey, and Kaldenbach immediately follows with "The paint seems to explode off the wall".
by Jackson Braider
"This is a really fascinating effort: three authorities, no narrator, all talking about a singular painter about whom we know almost nothing. Engaging, smart, enthusiastic commentators. The best bits are the intense descriptions of various paintings -- for example, the description of the pearl in "The Girl with the Pearl Earring." The program covers the gamut of Vermeer's art as well as the mystique surrounding Vermeer."
