Girl with a Pearl Earring

 

Further to my trip to The Hague last year, the highlight for me was seeing this very famous painting by Vermeer in the flesh.  I was amazed you were allowed to take photos in the Mauritshuis and I only had my phone camera which didn’t really do the painting (any of them) justice.  Oh well, I’ll take my Canon on my next trip!

The painting was smaller than I expected.

Oh, there were a few Rembrandts as well. The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp.
