The Girl with a Pearl Earring is in Atlanta at the High Museum of Art from now until September 29th. The exhibit includes many other beautiful works by Dutch masters including Rembrandt, and it is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about art history and art appreciation with your whole family. If you cannot make it to the exhibit, visit the High Museum’s website to learn more about The Girl and even use the Go Girl app to have some fun putting yourself into the painting, just like Mrs. Bearden!
