At the end of the nineteenth century, Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring sold for a pittance, an unknown work by an artist who was only beginning to achieve recognition. Today it is revered as a great masterpiece, so famous that it is recognizable by its title alone, with the name of its maker being almost superfluous. This lecture will examine the reasons this image resonates so profoundly with contemporary audiences.
"The Making of an Icon: How the Girl with a Pearl Earring Gained its Fame," Arthur Wheelock, The National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.Wednesday, December 4, 2013, 6 – 7 p.m.
