A famous painter from the Netherlands, Johannes Vermeer, is known as a painter who can expertly portray light. His famous work, Girl with the Pearl Earring, is known all around the world for showing a girl in a dark setting... but her pearl earring and blue turban are conspicuous. The highlights on her eyes, her lips... so wonderful! And she's smiling a bit too, a bit like the Mona Lisa. Check out these illustrations all based on Girl with the Pearl Earring!
