Summary
When an accident at work destroys her father's livelihood, 16 year old Griet is forced to become a maid to a rich family. Her master is the famous painter Vermeer. One of her duties is to clean his studio, during which she realises that she also has an eye for the colour and light needed to create Vermeer's masterpieces. When he himself discovers her talent, Griet's precarious status within the household comes under stress, and as his fascination grows, so do Griet's problems
