Girl With a Pearl Earring

A painting by Vermeer, was the inspiration for a novel. Not much is known about Vermeer or his works, and Tracy Chevalier created an entire fictional story about the subject of the painting and it's artist. Then, the novel was made into a movie. All bearing the same title as the painting, the same title as this post. It just amazes me that one work of art could inspire so many others. The fact that the score to the movie is also a work of art allows me to see one painting from 400 years ago transformed into every type of media. Really cool.

Tracy Chevalier's website about her book which is a very interesting read!
