ヨハネス・フェルメール「真珠の耳飾りの少女」は、誰か?Who is Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”?

This time, Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) is a Dutch painter. I would like to write about “Girl with a Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer. At that time, leaving his self-portrait was a great luxury.

Therefore, it was very expensive to have various painters draw self-portraits. Therefore, there are many works that depict rich people.

Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring” (1665) is Vermeer’s masterpiece. I also went to see it many times if I had the opportunity.

I think many people are nailed to these bewitching eyes and lips.

The symbol of wealth is gold in color. This is the color of precious metals and is a very effective color to symbolize wealth. And blue. This is the color royal blue, which guarantees its status.

There is no doubt that Johannes Vermeer, who used many colors, is a painter who deals with gorgeous subjects.

On top of that is a pearl. Nowadays, pearls often have beautiful shapes, but this is due to technological advances. Since ancient times, beautiful pearls have been quite expensive because they grow in nature.

This “girl with a pearl earring” is a fictional character or Vermeer’s daughter. There are various theories. The person who talked to me said he was the daughter of a maid. I think the word is half true.

I think the underprivileged but very beautiful girl was enough to tickle Johannes Vermeer’s heart.

However, this is very inconvenient if it is the subject matter that is on my side. Because Vermeer is also a painter with a gorgeous female exchange.

So, wearing an exotic turban, it’s a trick to hide your hair and imagine a human figure. It’s in noble gold and royal blue.

That’s not the only trick. Johannes Vermeer always delicately blurs things. In every painting. But for some reason it’s so beautiful. This lingering sound is wonderful.

Besides, the background is not drawn there. This is also a trick.

Vermeer’s royal blue always comes to my mind. “Girl with a Pearl Earring” is, of course, innocent in her eyes. When I stare at it, my heart flutters. The bewitching chibi is also noticeable. Pearls are beautiful.

I feel that this mysterious girl has a disproportionate status, and that her beautiful appearance is so beautiful that she is disproportionate to her status.

That is why he is a fictional character. It cannot be said that such a depiction is a fictitious person. That is why I feel that mysterious beauty attracts people’s hearts.

This time, I took up the portrait of Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”.
