MadameRuiz Profile picture The Girl with the Pearl Earring, Vermeer's Girl, who doesn't know her. Tourists flock to the Rijksmuseum to admire her, not knowing that this topper 'lives' in the Mauritshuis in The Hague. In room 15 to be precise.

Girl with a Pearl Earring is by one of the Netherlands' greatest masters of painting, Delft's Johannes Vermeer. His entire oeuvre consists of only about 40 paintings, but most of them are incredibly famous as far afield as the Netherlands.

The Girl with a Pearl Earring is perhaps the most famous. But, who is this girl? No one really knows. After all, the girl is not a portrait, but a tronie. This is what they call a study of an unnamed model, a certain type of face or character. Girl with a Pearl Earring could be seen as the Mona Lisa of the North. It is an exotically dressed girl with an oriental turban and a huge pearl in her ear.

In this abstract portrait, the girl is just a suggestion of what was. Shaped in paint splatters, reduced to a monochrome colour palette of brown tones.

I always like to play around. To play with the old masters and transform them into new masters. To play with various techniques and materials, in this case with digital brushes. Abstraction and realism always go hand in hand with me. Just as light and dark, inspired by the 17th-century chiaroscuro, go hand in hand here. The girl with the pearl earring is an absolute Dutch master, depicted here with a twist.

I am MadameRuiz, and am an artist by profession. I hope to delight you with my work. Here in my profile, or on your wall :) Both are fun!

Will you let me know what you think of my work? I would love to get in touch with you. Also when you have one of my works in your home I am very curious about the end result in your interior.

I love everything that has to do with art, culture and creativity. Experiencing, creating, teaching and communicating. Through language, image, non-verbal and through the musical voice.

I became known for my commissioned ink portraits. My work was first shown to a large audience in the program VTWonen Weer verliefd op je huis (February 2021). I make many ink portraits of and for individuals; from pregnancy portraits, wedding portraits, child portraits, love portraits and family portraits to portraits of pets such as dogs, cats, horses and birds. These ink portraits are all handmade by the way, drawn and painted with east indian ink on watercolor paper.

In my shop at work on the wall you can order my Digital Art. Because I normally work almost exclusively on commission, my autonomous art via Digital Art is really a wonderful experimental outlet. This also means that I keep experimenting with painting techniques and collage techniques using Photoshop. Although I love to experiment, quality comes first
