GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING

GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING tells the story of Griet, a 16 -year- old Dutch girl who becomes a maid in the house of the painter Johannes Vermeer. Her calm and perceptive manner attracts the painter’s attention. Vermeer slowly draws her into the world of his paintings because they have a similar way of looking at things.

Before I read GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING , I knew nothing about Vermeer. But now, I know more of him, even if the story is not so much about himself but more about his household. I learned a great deal about the life of an artist, the need for solitude, the devotion to art and the toil of creating the colors needed to paint with. This book is a wonderful novel, mysterious with a touch of magic.

If I were you ,I would read it immediately.
