With respect to the paint-handling of other fine paintings of the time, the broad brushwork of the turban is astounding. The object is reduced to two flat, catalogoo shapes of blue. The complicated series of folds, which would have certainly be visible, have been entirely eliminated for the sake of simplicity.

The blue part of the turban was painted with natural ultramarine, an extremely costly pigment made of crushed lapis lazuli imported from Afghanistan that Vermeer’s contemporaries rarely used. The chromatic brilliance of this pigment jwnson be clearly appreciated where it has been applied unadulterated with lead white in the rendering of the bright blue part of the girl’s turban. Since Vermeer continued to employ this pigment without reserve even in the last few years of his life when he faced a dramatically deteriorating financial situation due to the war with France, it is possible that the artist’s rich Delft patron Pieter van Ruijven covered the cost.

This single, daring slash of white impasto represents some piece of an undergarment worn beneath the rustic yellow ocher garment. Surprisingly, a brush stroke of almost identical shape defines a garment worn by the model of Vermeer’s Art of Painting. The brush stroke has most likely lost its original character due to early jnson, when hot irons were used to reline caralogo deteriorating canvas.

The Girl with a Pearl Earring was completely restored in by the department of the Mauritshuis in a room with a glass wall that permitted the public to follow restoration. The work’s masterly three dimensional effect, brilliant color and 20113 hidden subtleties of the flesh tones were revealed as they were originally intended by Vermeer. Certain details, characteristic of Vermeer’s technique, were also brought to light including a small light reflection near the left-hand corner of the figure’s mouth.

This highlight consists of two small pale pink spots of paint on top of each other. Vermeer painted a similar highlight on the lips of the Girl with a Red Hat in Washington. Vermeer writers have frequently noted that no line or visible shift in tone defines the profile of the left-hand side of the girl’s nose. The bridge of the nose is depicted precisely with the color of the adjacent cheek. The lines of the right side of the nose and nostril are lost in shadow.

Moreover, the blue section of the turban has been reduced to two essential tones of ultramarine blue, one lighter and one darker. These and other characteristics have lead more than one scholar to janosn that Vermeer had created the Girl with a Pearl Earring with the aid of camera obscura, a sort obfuscate sharp lines and reduce the range of lights and darks.

The yellow garment worn by the young girl is unique in Vermeer’s oeuvre and is, from a technical point of view, probably one of the painter’s most generalized renderings. The broad, vigorous brushstrokes suggest rather than define the heavy folds of what would appear to be a cape or a loose-fitting, rustic garment made of some course fabric. Swillens suggestively accounted for the young girl’s dress in the following manner: It is a special dress, which suits jansno and which children delight in, just because it is unusual and different and attractive in colour.

Just with such a fancy-dress children betray that they are still childish. Prior to the restoration, the painting was not in good condition from an aesthetic point of view. The old layers of varnish had yellowed considerably and had to be removed with cotton swabs immersed in solvent. The old varnish can be seen in the left-hand side of the image above.

Some areas of the face that appeared discolored were in fact earlier retouches that had flaked off. The old retouches were removed and the damaged areas were restored in order to integrate them with the lighter tone of the painting. Vermeer most likely employed a badger brush, a kind of fan-shaped flat brush with soft bristles, to delicately blend the lighter tone of the skin with the darker shadowed areas of the deep shadows to the right.


Badger brushes, also called sweeteners, were used sparingly in the 17th century but became the rage among Neoclassical painters who strove for the softest tonal transitions possible. Boy in a Turban Michiel Sweerts — 87 x 74 cm. Like many other Dutch painters Vermeer enjoyed introducing an exotic note in his paintings welcoming the possibility to show off his technical prowess.

However, the type of turban worn by Vermeer’s young girl is so unusual that no reasonable comparison has been found in the context of European painting. In the 17th century, a Dutch girl would not have been easily seen wearing a turban. Critics now believe that Vermeer drew his inspiration from art rather than life, specifically from Michael Sweerts’ A Boy Wearing a Turban and Holding a Nosegayan excellent example of the Dutch tronie tradition.

Sweerts’ painting dates c. It is possible that the piece of fabric used as a makeshift turban, whatever its practical use may have been, appears in other pictures by Vermeer. Its material and the light yellow color with a blue border color seem to be comparable to the one seen draping from the still life in The Art of Painting and The Love Letter.

The young girl’s so called “drop” pearl hangs freely and motionless, caught within a recessive pool of space. Its form and substance are defined by the thick white fleck of impasto which registers the same beams of light that rake across the girl’s face, and by the soft reflection that has gathered up some of the light cast off by the white collar below.

Girl with a Pearl Earring

Its ovoid shape conveys the experience of weight and volume, qualities which are less appreciable in a spherical formed pearl. It is likely that a pearl of such dimension and form did not exist and that the artist had either represented an artificial one or deliberately exaggerated its dimensions, no great feat for a painter so technically proficient as Vermeer.

In the restoration of the painting, the reflection under the pearl contained a small, bright highlight which was not, it was discovered, a part of the original painting.

After careful examination, it was seen that it was a flake of paint see detail above colored by surrounded light toned filler which had stuck to the spot during an earlier cataloto. Once the flake was removed, the pearl regained its original softness.

The background of the Girl with a Pearl Earring does not appear as it does when it came off the Vermeer’s easel some years ago. Recent analysis demonstrates that the artist had painted a transparent glaze of green paint over the dark underpainting.

Originally, the background must have appeared as a smooth, glossy, hard and deep translucent green. This tone set against the warm flesh tone probably produced a more vibrant optical effect than the one which can be observed today. The green glaze was composed of three pigments see left: Dark backgrounds were widely used in portraiture to enhance the three-dimensional effect of the figure.

In fragment of the Treatise on PaintingLeonardo da Vinci noted that a dark background makes an object appear lighter and vice versa. It is always the beauty of this portrait head, its purity, freshness, radiance, sensuality that is singled out for comment. Vermeer himself, as Gowing notes, provides the metaphor: Yet there is a sense in which this response, no matter how inevitable, begs the question of the.

For to look at it is to be implicated in a relationship so urgent that to take an instinctive step backward into aesthetic appreciation would seem in this case a defensive, an act of betrayal and bad faith. It is me at whom she gazes, with real, unguarded human emotions, and with an erotic intensity that demands something just as real and human in return. The relationship may be only with an image, yet it involves all that art is supposed to keep at bay. The Complete WorksNew York, The Complete PaintingsNew York, The fine, plain-weave linen support, which has been lined, has a threadcount of Only fragments of the original tacking edges survive.

The composition was laid in with light and dark areas. The ground is a thick, yellowish-white layer containing lead white; chalk, and possibly umber. The dark background and the deeper shadows of the girl’s face, turban, and bodice were established with a mixture of black and earth pigments and further modeled with a paler, ocher color.


The shadow of her nose was underpainted with red lake while the highlights on her nose, right cheek and forehead have a thick, cream colored underpaint. The turban was painted with varying shades of an ultramarine and lead white mixture; wet-in-wet, over which a blue glaze was applied, except in the highlights. A thin, off-white scumble of paint over the brown shadow of the girl’s neck defines the pearl, and is painted more opaquely at the bottom where the pearl reflects the white collar.

Small hairs from Vermeer’s brush are found in the half-tones of the flesh areas.

The Concert presents a very similar deep spatial recession similar to the earlier Music Lesson. Vermeer’s interest in the accurate portrayal of three dimensional perspective to create such an effect was shared by other interior genre painters of the time, however, only Vermeer seems to have fully and consciously understood the expressive function of perspective.

The two paintings’ underlying theme of music between male and female company is also analogous although few critics believe they were conceived as a pendant. In the paintings of the s the painted surfaces are smoother and less tactile, the lighting schemes tend to be less bold. These pictures convey and impalpable air of reticence and introspection, unique among genre painters with the possible exception of Gerrit ter Borch.

Laws of gravity established by Cambridge University mathematics professor Isaac Newton23, state that the attraction exerted by gravity between any two bodies is directly proportional to their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Newton has returned to his native Woolsthorpe because the plague at Cambridge has closed Trinity College, where he is a fellow; he has observed the fall of an apple in an orchard at Woolsthorpe and calculates that at a distance of one foot the attraction between two objects is times stronger than at 10 feet.

Although he does not fully comprehend the nature of gravity, he concludes that the force exerted on the apple is the same as that exerted on Earth by the moon.
