The Girl with the Pearl Earring

Johannes Vermeer painted "The Girl with the Pearl Earring" (above) in 1665. Dorothee Golz created the modern day version (below) digitally.

Golz is experimenting by putting portraits from hundreds of years ago into modern settings and modern body language... of her various attempts with this and other photoshops, this is one that seems to work... I suppose that says a lot about the original.
