This is the exquisite Girl With A Pearl Earring by Jan Vermeer, one of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s most prized masterpieces! With our adaptation, this evocative Dutch girl can be yours, so that you, the cross stitch enthusiast can re-create her with the same careful and loving artistic spirit.
Working and living during the seventeenth century, this shy Dutch artist produced only about forty paintings in his lifetime. Sometimes spending years on each canvas, Vermeer painted graceful scenes of domestic bliss, and engaging portraits of Dutch maidens dressed in elegant costumes. The ethereal light which fills this young beauty with gentle radiance will bring a bright touch of elegance to any decor.
