MadameRuiz Profile picture The girl with a pearl earring, Vermeer's girl, who doesn't know her. Tourists flock to the Rijksmuseum to admire her, not knowing that this masterpiece 'lives' in the Mauritshuis in The Hague. In room 15 to be exact.

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

The Girl with a Pearl Earring is perhaps the most famous. But who is this girl? Nobody actually knows that. The girl is not a portrait, but a tronie. That's what they call a study of an unnamed model, a certain type of face or character. You could see Girl with a Pearl Earring as the Mona Lisa of the North. It is an exotically dressed girl with an oriental turban and a huge pearl in her ear.

The portrait of the girl is really very crackled, which definitely has its charms because it also exudes something authentic. In this digital edit, her skin is almost back to the way it once was, making her skin youthful again. Her outfit has changed to a more abstract representation, just a suggestion of what was. The colors are roughly equivalent, so the portrait is still sandwiched between the two ocher areas, still drawing our gaze to that beautiful face. And although the girl has no eyebrows or eyelashes, it doesn't look out of place on her. Her lips are slightly open, as if she's casually sitting there or maybe just about to say something.

I always like to play. 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 for me. Just like the light and dark, inspired by the 17th century chiaroscuro, go hand in hand here. The girl with a 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
