Johannes Vermeer, the painter of the 17th century Dutch Golden Age, was inspired by everyday life and was well-known for his representation of contemporary interiors and portraits of women who lived in his hometown — Delft, Holland. One of his greatest creations is the Girl with a Pearl Earring, which remains one of his most memorable paintings. The painting shows an anonymous girl, appearing like a vision to the viewer. Vermeer achieved such an astonishing effect by using light, shadows and impressive brushwork.

What makes the “Mona Lisa of the North” so appealing are the eyes fixed on the viewer. There’s nothing between the young girl and us. The contrasting background brings out her light and creamy skin tone and yellow opulent gowns. Her elegant yellow and blue turban reveals the central point in the painting — the exquisite, large, tear-shaped pearl earring.

The painting doesn’t follow the distinctive style of a specific time or place. It could’ve been painted in the 15th century Paris or 21st century London. That’s why it is so relevant to this day. Our Girl with a Pearl Earring fine art giclee print is made with the newest high-end technology to demonstrate the brilliant artistry of Johannes Vermeer.
