The Girl with the Pearl Earring – Vermeer


SKU: N/A Category:


The Girl With A Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer is a simple portrait featuring a girl with a single pearl earring. 

An arrestingly beautiful girl with wide eyes turns her head to the viewer. Her lips are parted as if she is about to respond to somebody who has called her. She wears an exotic head-dress unlike anything ever worn by the Dutch of the 17th century. The cloth that hangs from the top of her turban has not yet come to rest from the motion of the girl's head as she looked around.  Vermeer’s use of lighting makes her face shine on the canvas.   The black background pushes the girl in her yellow and blue headpiece forwards in the canvas towards the viewer. 

This beautiful masterpiece would add to anyone’s home.  The black background would make this portrait stand out against any wall.
