Description: A copy of the original masterwork by Johannes Vermeer of Delft which hangs in the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague. The girl is wearing an exotic costume, a cloth wrapped into a turban which would not have been typical for a young Dutch girl of the time. Vermeer's use of blue and yellow brings a beautiful harmony to the portrait, which itself may have been idealised to show the girl's innocence.
