Download a High-resolution image of Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring for free

March 26th, 2013

Some museums are making high-resolution digital images their paintings available to the public. A detailed and finely calibrated color image of Vermeer’s iconic Girl with a Pearl Earring is downloadable from an NPR article on the two Vermeer paintings currently on display in the USA. Click here, scroll down to the painting , click on it to enlarge and save it you hard drive. Enjoy, it’s the best I have seen so far.

Vermeer’s stunning Woman in Blue Reading a Letter is also accessible on the same page but a far better image can be downloaded (registration required) at the Rijksmuseum.
