Vermeer's painting Girl with a Pearl Earring has been adapted to the surface of a ceramic vase in which one can display a beautiful flower bouquet. The vase is an oval shape with the painting on the front and a black background at back.
The vase illustrates the riveting look of a young girl from the Northern Renaissance in Holland. She is imbued with a rich warm light which is characteristic of Vermeer's paintings. He only produced about one painting per year as he worked closely to make the surface look like today modern photographs, revealing the minutest details and color.
This vase is part of an art vase collection called Silhouette d'Art. It is crafted from fine ceramic and decorated with a famous masterpiece painting. Vases are a cooperative effort between two European fine art manufacturers -- Parastone, a Dutch Art Company, and John Beswick, a British ceramic company. The famous art masterpieces are selected for their visual beauty and then applied to a special shaped vase design with a cut edge to enhance a design element from the painting.
