My Girl

March 2, 2023

Vermeer’s Girl with a pearl earring is on loan to another museum, but the Mauritshuis, where the painting usually resides did not slap up a sign saying it was on loan. Instead they sponsored an event called “My girl with a pearl earring,” inviting everyone to contribute a facsimile of the painting to stand in for the original. It’s pretty clever.

There are many others. I learned about the show at This is Colossal

There are many more images at Mauritshuis
