Amsterdam, 1677: Soon after declaring bankruptcy, the widow of Johannes Vermeer finds herself obligated to sell the last work by her husband.
Madrid, present day. Marta Miralles must restore a painting by an anonymous Flemish painter property of the Medraño family, owner of one of the most prestigious auction houses in Europe. When Marta accepts the job, ghosts from the past start to reappear in her life, like Javier, with whom she had a torrid relationship, and Paddy, the man she loved for the most part of her life. Soon, the lives of all of them will start melting with the story of that mysterious painting and with Marta’s obsession with the famous Vermeer and his paintings.
Two love stories separated across time but united by the mystery of a missing painting; two people obsessed by the talent of the Flemish master Vermeer of Delft; a set of chiaroscuros restored stroke by stroke, an uncatalogued and forgotten masterwork.
Azul Vermeer addresses an original and rarely-trodden subject: the world of art and auctions, the mystery that envelops the workshops of restorers, the world of collectors, the black market and the secrets of the most prestigious galleries in the world.
