In keeping with my Vermeer fix this week, I decided to write about two novels with Vermeer as their subject matter.
Girl With a Pearl Earring, by Tracy Chevalier is a great read. I loved the imagery and the story. However, I felt the author portrayed Vermeer as a bit of a slimeball and that just didn’t set well with me. Have you read this book and what did you think about it?
I haven’t yet read Girl in Hyacinth Blue, by Susan Vreeland, but I’ve seen the movie! It traces the history of the owners of a supposed Vermeer nobody has ever heard about. Has anybody read the book?
