Pulled From the Archives: In the Mood for… Vermeer – Girl with a Pearl Earring

  There are many painters I admire, but only a few that speak right to my heart. One of them is Johannes Vermeer(1632-1675). A couple of his paintings can be seen in the Gemäldegalerie (Picture Gallery) in Berlin, and I can not count the times I stood in front of them, completely mesmerized.
