When he hears a rumor of a mysterious, other-worldly new pigment, brought to Venice by the richest man in Europe, he sets out acquire the rare color and secure his name in history.

Winning a commission to paint a portrait of the rich man's wife, Giorgione thinks he has found a way into the merchant's favor.
