Girl with a Pearl Earring; my quest for legendary vintage art

I am a lover of art but when I opened up my timeline this evening and saw this post, I had to record this opportunity in my gratitude journal.

This painting is a 17tb C classic but there is something quite extraordinary and noveau about it which I find quite intriguing.
