My Girl with a Pearl
Mauritshuis open call: Anyone (and anything) can be the Girl with a Pearl Earring!
16 Nov 2022
The painting Girl with a Pearl Earring will be on display at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam for eight weeks from early February next year. The Mauritshuis, under the title My Girl with a Pearl, is therefore appealing to everyone worldwide to be inspired by Vermeer's masterpiece. Submit your Girl for a chance to have your photo hung in the familiar place of the Girl, in 'her' gallery. The presentation My Girl with a Pearl shows that the Girl is recognisable in everything and everyone. In a son or daughter, in buttons, an onion or a sardine can. All (art) forms are allowed: a photo, a drawing, a painting, sculpted, embroidered or knitted, as long as the photo of your creation is sent digitally to the museum. On Instagram, the Mauritshuis has started the account @mygirlwithapearl. My Girl with a Pearl is made possible by NN Group.
