Girl with a Pearl Earring

Chevalier, Tracy.  Girl with a Pearl Earring.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.
