Mark Your Calendars: “Girl With a Pearl Earring” Is Coming To America

It’s been here before, yes, but not in a long, long time, and now that its home at the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis is going dark for renovation next April, Vermeer’s ridiculously popular Girl With a Pearl Earring is coming back to American in 2013 for a brief tour.

Next year, though, remember. Next year. (FULL ARTICLE: Carol Vogel, The New York Times)
