    Smile Girl with a “Purrl” Earring

    Some recent re-enactments of classic paintings have been very funny. This is my favorite, however:

    Oh wow! My daughter and I think it's wonderful. My daughter says that it is better than the original. How did you get your kitty to pose?

    This isn’t my kitty; I just thought it was a wonderful image and wanted to share. Many amazing impressions of paintings have been done and shared recently, but this one had a pearl and a kitty in it, so my heart was won. I think the photographer did an amazing job with the colors and composition. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Brilliant! People have been so clever in the way they’ve recreated the great artworks. Bonus points for including a kitty on this one.

    Oh, she is not my kitty! My kitty would have let me know who was boss. I wish I knew who photographed her!

    My kitty:

    As genius as the original art is, I've always thought that girl had a "bored, teen snark ARE WE DONE WITH THIS NONSENSE YET" expression on her face LOL!

    Not a few scholars think that the Girl and others of his female subjects were modeled by Vermeer’s eldest daughter. That would fit right in with your observation!

    I get a little irked at the idea that Vermeer couldn’t have painted an object that he had never owned . . . whatever that gem is adorning the ear of the young woman, the light on it is wonderful, and her face is lit in a similar way.

    The Metropolitan Museum started a hashtag on Instagram called #MetTwinning where people tag their pics of recreations. They repost their favorites. It's a really great hashtag.
