'Captured in Beauty' depicts the life and work of the unknown 20th century Dutch artists couple Karin and Ernst van Leyden. During their nomadic lifetime they travelled and painted everywhere while socialising with artists like Man Ray, Picasso, Salvador Dali and Willem de Kooning. Their desire for fame and their struggles, derived from their voluminous personal lettres and glamourous photographs, show a growing concern for their image as artists; their ultimate piece of art. Ragnar, their now elderly son sketches a shocking picture of the absent parents of his childhood. Nowadays a collective of art collectors are fascinated by the Van Leydens and try to put them, still a footnote in art history, posthumously on the map. The film was broadcasted by Omroep Flevoland and TV Rijnmond.
