I tool photographs of the Vermeers at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Unfortunately this was not possible with those in the Frick Museum. I believe that our cultural heritage should not be monopolised. That is why the law distincts between the possession of originals and the limited copyrights.
Then I checked what we had in Visipix.com and started the renovation. It is unbelievable, we could not trace one single good repro of a Vermeer in the entire Internet.
The Visipix.com repros of all Vermeers are a breakthrough.
