After Vermeer

Libby Caldwell Oil on Panel 9 x 10 $760
I have recently been powerfully drawn to the work of two artists: Turner, and Vermeer. This painting is after Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. I liked the glowing light, and the luminous color in this piece of work, and the way Vermeer painted the softness of the skin. Like a vision emanating from the darkness, she seems to belong to no specific time or place.
Vermeer painted the original between 1665-1666.

I'm new to your site. This painting is so lovely. Could you specify whether the size is in inches or feet.
