the lost vermeer

currently thinking about how the lost vermeer was a very convincing fake but merely knowing it was a fake wasn’t enough- sherlock had to explain exactly why

“The painting is a fake. It’s a fake. That’s why Woodbridge and Cairns were killed […] Oh, come on. Proving it’s just the detail. The painting is a fake. I’ve solved it. I’ve figured it out. It’s a fake! That’s the answer. That’s why they were killed […] Okay, I’ll prove it. Give me time. Will you give me time?”

BBC Sherlock: Lost Vermeer- Detail 



Here’s a larger picture of the Lost Vermeer charm from the bracelet I posted last night. It’s porbably not spectacular but 1: It’s tiny, 2: It would never look like the actual painting, and 3: I couldn’t find a good screencap or anything of the painting. Even pausing my DVD, Sherlock was always in the way! XD

By the way, that is actually a small piece of canvas that I cut to paint on. So only the frame is made of clay. X3

The Lost Vermeer Posters?

Guys, so, in The Great Game, there’s posters of the Vermeer exhibition hanging on walls and stuff. Does anybody know the exact time of when there’s a poster on screen or has a screenshot? I’d need to know what they looked like exactly.

I think I remember there being some antique frame and just ‘the lost vermeer’ scribbled inside that frame, but I’d be curious about the exact font they used. So, anybody help me?

Is it ever how we’ve imagined? I wake up lost
then watch the dawn’s dim shadows take on weight,
and the room becomes every other room
where I have lived, the window any window
I’ve looked through. Outside, the threadbare browns
of early winter, the frost-stunned grass,
tiny tremors of winds. the inanimate
take on life for a moment,
