Girl With a Pearl Earring
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Have you ever imagined Vermeer’s studio, or how he created such strikingly quiet images in the midst of a busy household? Tracey Chevalier depicts Vermeer’s daily life in her novel, The Girl With a Pearl Earring, in which she imagines how Vermeer’s famous painting came to be. The movie by the same name name features Colin Firth as the modern master and Scarlett Johansson as his model . . . Enjoy the film (by popular request) at the Museum with an introduction by Curator of Education Alice Novak and a brief discussion following the film.
The Museum will provide complimentary popcorn, and beverages will be available for purchase.
