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.

In bocca al lupo. m & v
