Stay in touch, enclose a photo, and brighten someone's day with a card reproducing Jan Vermeer's most popular painting: Girl With a Pearl Earring. This set of portfolio notes from Galison reproduces Vermeeer's oil on canvas painting from 1665-66, now in the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, The Hague. The subject of Girl with a Pearl Earring is not a portrait, but a painting intended to show interesting characteristics, expressions, or poses. She is seen as a personification of beauty and charm, and her charm is universal.
