The painting Girl with a Pearl Earring is one of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s masterworks. It is now in the collection of the Mauritshuis gallery inThe Hague, but in 2013 has toured the United States with other works while the museum completes building work. After the most recent restoration of the painting in 1994, the subtle color scheme and the intimacy of the girl’s gaze toward the viewer have been greatly enhanced.
Tracy Chevalier wrote a historical novel, also entitled Girl with a Pearl Earring (1999), fictionalizing the circumstances of the painting’s creation. In the novel, Johannes Vermeer becomes close with a fictional servant named Griet, whom he hires as an assistant and has sit for him as a painting model while wearing his wife’s pearl earrings. The novel inspired the 2003 film that stars Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) as the girl with the pearl earring.
