For the fan of Scarlett Johannsen and her acting talent, there is the still comparison going to be displayed soon: The Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Ms. Johannsen starred in the movie as the muse of Vermeer and brought attention to this incredible painting.
The masterpiece is considered one of the most famous paintings in the world along with Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Edvard Munch’s The Scream.
The show on the golden age of Dutch painting at Palazzo Fava in Bologna is being organized together with the Mauritshuis museum in the Hague and runs until May 25.
Mauritshuis, which is under restoration, is also loaning Vermeer’s Diana and Her Companions and works by Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Ter Borch and Claesz.
Girl with a Pearl Earring is finishing up a world tour after being taken to Japan in 2012 and the United States in 2013. Bologna will be its only stop in Europe, before it is returned to the Mauritshuis.
