Part of Musart Boutique’s original collection Kiss My Art comes this Vermeer inspired hoodie representing the artist's most famous painting: Girl with a Pearl Earring (c. 1665).

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.

    Johannes Vermeer established a brilliant set of techniques, utilizing light in revolutionary ways. He created masterpieces that will stand the test of time. His works, while not well known during his time, have remained in the popular consciousness since a revival in the 1850s. Vermeer painted a lot of domestic interior scenes, as well as portraiture focused on a few subjects. His interests lay in compositional and technical aspects of art, including, most famously, his preoccupation with light and lighting.  Girl with a Pearl Earring, his most famous pictures, epitomizes his interests and shows off his technical skill beautifully. While little remains about the artist’s personal life, we can tell he was utterly devoted to his work and his art and spent a great deal of time in his home in Delft.  His artwork only circulated amongst collectors during his life, but in time, his works would impact the world.
