What you need to know before your trail
In 1630s Amsterdam, Tulipmania has seized the city. But for wealthy merchant Cornelis Sandvoort is captivated by this flower but what captivates him the most is his wife Sophia. They are trying for a baby – an heir, but have not been lucky so far.
When the husband commissions a painting to show how much he loves his wife, he is not expecting Jan van Loos, the artist he hires, to show the same level of interest in his subject. As the painting takes shape, so too does the life of everyone around it.
