    Being a painter myself I was drawn to the “art” link on your page. I notice under “Art images- Dutch Golden Age” you includes 3 images by Vermeer along with video commentary by others. I’m not sure if you’re pointing to these as being examples of Objectivist ideals but would assume you are. If so I’m curious to know if you have seen this documentary that appears to prove that Vermeer was basically a copyist who used mechanical devices to create his work. It’s a fascinating story of how a wealthy, obsessive, non-artist, “techno geek” was able to crack the mystery and produce a highly convincing replica of a famous Vermeer simply by employing the same technology–>

    “Tim’s Vermeer, directed by Teller of Penn & Teller fame. Produced by Teller’s stage partner Penn Jillette and Farley Ziegler, the film follows Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, as he attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all of art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’) manage to paint so photo-realistically, 150 years before the invention of photography? Jenison’s epic research project ultimately succeeds as he uses 17th century ”
