  • The Girl with the Pearl Earring

    Director: Peter Webber, 2004

    Based on Tracy Chevalier’s novel with same name, the film is about 17th century painter, Johannes Vermeer’s masterpiece ‘The Girl with the Pearl Earring’. Although we don’t have any records on the identity, many people think that the subject of the painting was a maid working at Vermeer’s House. Departing from this point, the movie focuses on her identity and making of the portrait. Upon the request of his patron Van Ruijen, Vermeer starts making Griet’s painting. Through time, the painter and Griet get closer leading to problems in the household.
