Girl with a Pearl Earring is a famous painting by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer. It was painted in
approximately 1665 using oil on canvas. As the title suggests, it shows a young woman with a pearl earring as a focal point admidst a black backdrop.  The work is currently kept in the Mauritshuis, The Hague.

Movie AdaptationEdit

The painting also inspired a 2003 film of the same name, starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth, about a young woman who inspires Vermeer to create the now iconic painting. The plot is mostly fictional. The movie features bright color schemes similar to the ones found in Vermeer's work.
