Pearl Girl

Sometimes known as ‘the Dutch Mona Lisa’, Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring will be on exhibit at the High Museum of Art 23 June–29 September.
 
If you've ever wondered about the story behind that enigmatic expression, read Tracey Chevalier’s best-seller, Girl with a Pearl Earring. The novel is narrated by Griet, the artist’s servant, studio assistant, and model for what would become one of the world’s most famous paintings.
 
AFPL catalogue includes paper, electronic, and audio book formats as well as the Oscar nominated film on DVD.
