Delft blue wall plate with image of "the girl with a pearl earring" by Johannes Vermeer.
The work was one of the most beloved paintings in the golden age, yet Vermeer's works were forgotten. Johannes Vermeer was rediscovered in the nineteenth century by the French art critic Théophile Thoré-Bürger. He went in search of Vermeer's works and described 80 copies in an essay. After the publication of his essay, a hunt for Johannes Vermeer's paintings unfolds.
