The Girl With The Pearl Earring based on a painting by Johannes Vermeer (c.1665). This statue is a three dimensional adaptation of Vermeer's painting. The actual painting is an amazing composition, demonstrating Vermeer's famous use of light and unparalleled brushwork, and especially, an unusual, very appealing portrait of a sweet, ordinary, working class girl. Her magnificent headpiece is recreated in rich blue and an actual faux pearl earring dangles from her ear. Statue is made from hand-painted resin. Base is black metal. Description card included.
