Portrait.

The Girl with the Pearl Earring, Vermeer’s masterpiece, revisited by the Artist. Not only painted but sculpted, it transmits great three-dimensionality to the bas-relief. The refinement of the chisel carving (7 mm deep) and the care of the details make the work a real jewel of sculptural and pictorial technique, merging painting and sculpture. The frame is custom carved and painted in gold in perfect 15th century Florentine style.
