  • Come up with a funny and original caption. It doesn't have to fit the original meaning of the painting.

  • Choose a painting from our collection.
  • Recreate it in food. Bread, cheese, sushi, anything you like.
  • Share your creation on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #mauritshuisathome.
  • Throwing it away would be a waste – eat your favourite artwork after you’ve submitted it.

#TussenKunstenQuarantaine

With its call to recreate world-famous paintings, the Instagram account @tussenkunstenquarantaine (meaning ‘Between Art & Quarantine) has become a global phenomenon. We can’t get enough of all the Girl with a Pearl Earring look-a-likes that have been popping up. Given that we’re all at home, we hope that you’ll join the challenge.

  • Grab some items that you have lying around at home and dress up as (or take inspiration from) your favourite painting, such as Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.
  • Take a photo of your creation and share it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #tussenkunstenquarantaine.
  • If you chose our Girl as your favourite painting, don’t forget to add #mygirlwithapearl and #mauritshuisathome.

We’ll share the best creations and the most entertaining entry will receive a Girl with a Pearl Earring rubber duck!
