GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING By Johannes Vermeer Sometimes referred as “The Dutch Mona Lisa”, Girl with a Pearl Ear-ring is a portrait of a girl depicted by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. It was painted around 1665, when portraying just a head was not considered as a portrait. In his time, Johannes Vermeer couldn’t sell the painting for much, but today, it’s one of the most admired paintings in art-world. In present time, we can find it at Mauritshuis gallery in The Hague.
