To celebrate Vermeer’s iconic masterpiece―presented at The Frick Collection for three months this fall―the public is invited to an after-hours viewing of the special exhibition Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis together with a screening of Peter Webber’s 2003 film “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth.
The fictional story follows Griet (Johansson), a young maid working in the house of painter Johannes Vermeer (Firth), who first becomes his assistant and then the model for one of the artist’s most famous works. (Rated PG-13; 100 minutes.)
The exhibition viewing begins at 5:30 p.m. Film screening starts at 6:00 p.m. Nathaniel Prottas, the Frick’s Samuel H. Kress Interpretive Fellow, will give a brief introduction to the film.
