Girl with a pearl earring (Vermeer)

 

Girl with a pearl earring, Johannes Vermeer (c.1665).

 

This is probably the most famous painting by Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675). The dark background combined with the light on the girl’s face result in a strong contrast, a typical feature of the baroque era. The soft palette conveys a peaceful atmosphere and emphasizes the purity of the young model.
