Painted in 1665 by Johannes Vermeer, the "Girl with a pearl earring" is, undoubtedly, one of the most iconic of the few dozen artworks painted by the Dutch maestro towards the final decade of his life. Surviving through countless trysts with destiny over the subsequent centuries, the painting now rests in fame abound. Surprisingly, however, its subject still maintains a shroud of unrelenting mystery. Detailed investigations till date have failed to identify the girl in the painting. Many now believe the subject to be a figment of Vermeer's imagination, intended as a study of expression rather than a portrait - a "tronie", as some may have referred to the work back in the day. Wearing an exaggerated costume and a beguiling smile, the girl with a pearl earring may never have been meant to capture our attention the way it does, but so is oft how the tale of a masterpiece goes.
