Girl with a Pearl Earring is street art in Haarlem

In Haarlem you can see Golden Age painter Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring” as street art. She is hidden away in one of Haarlem’s beautiful little streets.

Where is she?

Unlike many works of street art, Girl with a Pearl Earring isn’t a large piece so you have to look for it. You can find her in Kokstraat, gracefully placed on what could have been a small window at some point, recessed in a red brick wall between the houses.

I like this interpretation of ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring” because it makes what is considered “high art” accessible, relevant and fun.

“Girl with a Pearl Earring” is Vermeer’s most well known painting can be seen at the Mauritshuis museum in Den Haag.
