Based on Donna Tartt’s 2013 novel of the same name, “The Goldfinch” centres around Theodore "Theo" Decker, a young man with a troubled childhood. Theo was only 13 years old when a tragedy marks him forever - his mother dies in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York while he manages to survive the attack. In the chaos and debris around him, Theo gets something that goes with him through his entire life, full of misery, guilt and pain. It is the vision of his mother favourite work of art from the Dutch Golden Age, “The Goldfinch”. While the painting becomes famous thanks to Donna Tartt’s novel, the story of its artist, Carel Fabritius, is even stranger than a fiction could create.
