The Girl with a Pearl Earring, Jan Vermeer’s most famous painting, is often called the ‘Dutch Mona Lisa’. The comparison to Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa (ca. 1504) makes sense: both paintings share an air of mystery, from the model’s enigmatic gaze to the speculations surrounding the identities of the women in the paintings. The identity of the model in The Girl with a Pearl Earring remains unknown. Some have suggested that it is Vermeer’s eldest daughter, Maria, however, there is no compelling evidence to confirm this assertion.

The painting is considered a tronie, a subcategory of portraiture that was popular in the Dutch Golden Age and Flemish Baroque art. Tronies are studies of facial characteristics, stereotypical characters or exaggerated expressions.

    About the Artist:

    Johannes Vermeer (1632 - 1675) is best known for his meticulously rendered images of women in light-filled domestic interiors. A slow and methodical painter, Vermeer produced relatively few paintings (34 have been attributed to him) but was a modest celebrity in his hometown of Delft during his lifetime. Vermeer is now considered one of the greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age.
