J. VERMEER - "Meisje met de Parel".

I HAD A DREAM.

I had a dream in which I was the owner of two paintings: "Mona Lisa" and "Girl with a pearl earring".
What would I do if that was real?
Sell Mona Lisa and become a rich man: keep the Vermeer for my pleasure!


IK HAD EEN DROOM.

Ik droomde dat ik eigenaar was van twee schilderijen: "Mona Lisa" en "Meisje met de Parel".
Wat zou ik doen mocht het werkelijk zijn?
Mona Lisa verkopen en schatrijk worden; de Vermeer houden voor mijn plezier!

    I agree with your dream - this is an exceptional painting, even by the standards of Vermeer!

    I just learned about the Teylers Museum fm yr Haarlem page. Immediately after, found a reference to it on Expatica (good website originating in the Netherlands.) Teylers and the Louvre are presenting a comprehensive exhibition on Claude Lorrain, at the Teylers until 8 January. If only I could fly over for a week!

    That's a very plausible explanation of why the Girl with the Pearl Earring is Vermeer’s best-loved painting.
