Girl with a pearl headdress
I've been unable to find details about this painting, except that it is entitled "Girl with a Pearl Headdress" and is attributed to the "Central European School" in 1625-1635.
My train of thought on seeing this was to wonder what this girl would think were she to be transported to our modern world and be taken for a visit to our local Target store, where girls of a similar age consider themselves fully dressed while wearing millimeter-thick leggings topped by a Green Bay Packers t-shirt.
Would she be... shocked? Or jealous of their freedom? Or... would our local tweens be jealous of her?
