Well it looked very beautiful in graphite when I drew it, that's why I thought it was something special like the Mona Lisa.

I heard a different story about this painting: the girl was his maid and she tried the his wife's earrings. Vermeer caught her.

"Girl with the Pearl earring" supposedly tells the story behind the painting. Stars Scarlett Johannson as"the girl." I am not sure of how much truth was embellished in the movie but it was still very interesting.

I saw Vermeer's The Milkmaid at Rijksmuseum. I wish the Girl with the Pearl Earrings was displayed in the same museum in Amsterdam.
