Girl with a Pearl Earring
Chevalier, Tracy. Girl with a Pearl Earring.
A coming of age story about Griet, a young maid and assistant to the artist, Vermeer. Set in 17th century Holland. Extremely well written. Chevalier writes like a semiotician in her description of Vermeer’s paintings and like an artist herself in Griet’s thoughts about art and the artist’s way of seeing.
