After a long time another contribution from me. I found the girl of the pearl earring! From the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. One of the best known paintings in the museum #Mauritshuis.

I had a desire to photograph her for a long time, but I could not find a model that really resembles her. And then I discovered Rivka! With the assistance of her mother we had a great photoshoot! Of the more than 15 images I have selected two that approach her gaze the most.

Which of the two best resembles the original painting?

The girl's smile is one of the mysteries of this painting. She has a small smile, but at the same time she also seems a bit sad.

Rivka and her mother
