About Looking Sharp T-Shirt - Vermeer - Girl with a Pearl Earring
This Looking Sharp T-Shirt features a painting by Vermeer called: ' Girl with a Pearl Earring'. The dreamy girl with the pearl earring became an icon of Western painting during the 20th century. The small painting has an amazing composition, Vermeer’s famous light, and unparalleled brushwork, and above all, an unusual, very appealing portrait of a sweet, ordinary, working-class girl. The painting was purchased by the art collector des Tombes in 1883 for a mere 30 cents at an auction and was left to The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague in 1902. Johannes Vermeer was a somewhat unknown figure during his time because of a small creative output and economic troubles in the Netherlands. He was a stunning realist painter with expert skills with chiaroscuro and camera obscura work. Nevertheless, he ushered in a series of work that firmly solidified his position in the Baroque canon.
