Cinéma Art Historique: Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003)
Saturday, May 20, 2023
6:00pm – 8:30pm
Get ready for the 2022-2023 season of Cinéma Art Historique! This free-admission film series is designed to explore the connections between art history and cinema. After each screening, enjoy a Q&A and discussion with Dr. Alex Rich, Executive Director and Chief Curator, about how the evening’s film aligns with the histories and stories it strives to tell.
In our final film in the 2022-2023 season, Scarlett Johansson stars as Griet, the titular Girl with a Pearl Earring. As a young 17th century housemaid, Griet develops a close relationship to Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer in secret, becoming his source of inspiration for one of his most famous paintings.
Registration is required, and space is limited. The film screening and Q&A will be held in the Polk Museum of Art’s Auditorium.
