The Girl with a Pearl Earring
We've just come back from a quick trip up the coast to San Francisco to visit the deYoung Museum where we were able to see the exhibition of the Dutch masters featuring Vermeer's The Girl with a Pearl Earring. The Mauritshuis, in the Netherlands, is being remodeled so the collection is on a very limited tour. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this painting, and the others, here in our own backyard. Nothing, absolutely nothing, compares with seeing the original right in front of you.
