Why is Vermeer’s “Girl with the Pearl Earring” considered a masterpiece?

<p>It is the mysterious subject of the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, “<a href=”https://www.outpost-art.org/girl-with-a-pearl-earring-p-19781.html”>Girl with a Pearl Earring</a>.” The plate is often referred to as “North Mona Lisa.” Belong to the ideal Dutch style, sometimes too expressive Known as “Troni” any face, The Girl with Pearl Earring has two gravitational grafts And the remarkable silence of Vermeer. But this painting stands apart from the quiet narrative scenes Which we observe from afar in a lot of paintings (Vermeer). A girl reads a message. piano Lesson. Portrait of an artist working. These paintings give us a sense of familiarity from a reasonable distance, The slanted curtain often symbolizes separation.</p>

<p>See the maid pour milk quietly, But milk is not for us. What we are only spectators. The compositions studied in Vermeer’s paintings. A sense of balanced harmony. The chess-like floor is in many of his works We show us the Vermeer control of the oblique perspective technology. It is a technique that uses angle deflection To create an illusion, retreat an object away. Other elements are line of sight, mirrors and light sources Describe the moment according to position and area. A woman reading a message next to an open window Neatly positioned to reflect the image of the viewer. Vermeer may conceals a man who rests the painter for the sake of composition. The absence of these elements in the “Pearl Earring Girl” painting gives her life.</p>

<p>The method of treatment (Vermeer) of light and shadow or evacuation and stoning Its use means a dark, flat background to highlight its three dimensions. Instead of being a piece in a theater scene, Become a psychological subject. Her visual communication and her lips as far apart as if she were about to say something Make us stand up for her campaign. The nobles or religious figures were the subject of the prevailing portraits. So why did Vermeer draw an unknown girl? In the seventeenth century the city (Delft) like the Netherlands as a whole, Rebellion against Aristocratic rule and the Catholic Church. After eight decades of revolution against Spanish rule, The Dutch favored autonomy and a political republic. The city of Delif was not under the rule of any kings or bishops, Many painters, such as Vermeer, remained without the usual officials. Fortunately, he did economic innovation Which was led by the company “East India” Dutch Change the economic landscape in the Netherlands. Which led to the emergence of a class of traders and a new kind of power.</p>

<p>And their desire to appear in the paintings they funded These traders preferred to draw people from the middle class Within areas that look like their homes And are surrounded by familiar things. The maps shown in Vermeer’s paintings, for example It was considered a merchant class known as the Golden Age of the Netherlands Popular and global The Oriental turban worn by the “Pearl Earring Girl” It reflected the global dimension of the merchant class, The pearl, which symbolizes wealth, is an exaggeration. Vermeer could not buy a pearl of this size. Most likely, a piece of glass or tin was painted to look like a pearl. This illusion of richness is reflected in the painting itself. In a broader context, the pearl looks round and heavy, But when you look at it carefully it will look like a floating coating. When we examine them carefully, we can see the ability of Vermeer as an illusionist Even if we do not know the identity of the real Pearl Girl, We can enjoy its plate in an unforgettable way It hangs in its eternal resting place at the Museum of Murchus in The Hague Its presence is both static and disturbing.</p>
