Girl with a pearl earring tells the story of Griet, a 16-year-old Dutch girl, who becomes a maid in the house of the painter Johannes Vermeer. Her calm and perceptive manner not only helps her in her household duties, but also attracts Vermeer's attention. He slowly draws her into the world of his paintings and ultimately has her sit for him as a model. In this richly imagined portrait of the young woman who inspired one of Vermeer's most celebrated paintings, Tracy Chevalier transports readers to a bygone time and place. History and fiction merge seamlessly in a luminous tale of artistic vision, sensual awakening, and daily life in the Netherlands of the 17th-century.

The painter Vermeer chooses a housemaid to sit as a model, creating conflict with his wife. Chevalier again sets up contrasts between the wealthy and the servants. The rich seldom realize the hardships their demands create.
