Postcard The Girl with the Pearl
This illustrated postcard by Lotza depicts the two hands of Vermeer’s “The Girl with the Pearl,” a 17th century masterpiece that has captured the public’s imagination for centuries. The original artwork is an oil on canvas by Johannes Vermeer, who is considered one of the greatest Dutch artists of all time.
The Girl with the Pearl is also known as the “Mona Lisa of the North” because of its popularity and mystery. The painting depicts an unnamed young woman with a pearl dangling from her left ear, looking down at the viewer with glowing eyes. The girl’s face is dramatically lit and her enigmatic expression has captured the imagination of many artists and writers over the years.
The work was painted around 1665 and became famous because of Vermeer’s subtle technique, which used a limited color palette to create an atmosphere of tranquility and serenity. Light, color and composition are all perfectly balanced, creating a visual harmony that has dazzled art critics and viewers for centuries.
Today, “The Girl with the Pearl” is a cultural icon and an inspiration to many artists, writers and filmmakers. Lotza‘s adaptation perfectly captures the mystical beauty of the original, focusing on the elegant hands and details of the hanging pearl. This postcard is a modern tribute to one of the greatest masterpieces in art history.
