Girl on a Brick Wall ~ Graffiti by 

Girl with a Pearl Earring (circa 1665) is one of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s masterworks. Here, in downtown New London, Connecticut (USA), she has been painted again, this time high on the side of an old brick building. Even on this rough surface her eyes remain compelling and haunting.

Girl on a Brick Wall is the cover image for a CALENDAR called Photomanipulation ~ a New Vision. (click to view)

Canon EOS REBEL T1i, Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-55mm.
Editing: in Paint Shop Pro, one texture layer from ghostbones (Flickr) and another from struckdumb (DeviantArt) have been added to the photo of this faded painting on a black brick wall.

    WOW! Whoever painted this Vermeer on a wall.. is a remarkable artist!!

  • It’s hard for me to believe that an artist is willing to paint in a location where the work won’t last, but will be damaged by sun, rain and pollution and will just fade away. Thanks for commenting! ☺

    This is really beautiful…Please add it to the StreetArt Group!! Thanks Gena

  • Thank you, Gena! About your group- I read the rules and this doesn’t qualify. As stated here, this has added layers (to distract attention away from much fading and some damage on the original.) ☺♥
