The Painting

This gorgeous painting has been the inspiration for countless movies, books, and papers, and is affectionately known as the Dutch Mona Lisa. Here’s a bit more about the painting from the Mauritshuis museum website:

“Girl with a Pearl Earring is Vermeer’s most famous painting. It is not a portrait, but a ‘tronie’ – a painting of an imaginary figure. Tronies depict a certain type or character; in this case a girl in exotic dress, wearing an oriental turban and an improbably large pearl in her ear.

Johannes Vermeer was the master of light. This is shown here in the softness of the girl’s face and the glimmers of light on her moist lips. And of course, the shining pearl.”

Johannes Vermeer was a Dutch painter who lived between 1632 and 1675. He only produced about 36 paintings in his lifetime, but each of them are revered for their incredible use of light and form. Check out more cross stitch patterns inspired from paintings by this incredible artist.
