Scientists Study ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ in Hopes of Finding How Vermeer Painted His Masterpiece

"A team of experts from both Europe and the United States have converged at the Mauritshuis to examine “Girl with a Pearl Earring”​ using an array of non-invasive technologies, among them “fiber optic reflectance spectroscopy, macro X-ray powder diffraction and optical coherence tomography,” according to Siegal. The project, titled “The Girl in the Spotlight,” began on February 26 and ends March 11. Abbie Vandivere, head researcher and paintings conservator at the Mauritshuis, tells Siegal that the team will be working day and night to study the painting as much as possible during the tight time frame."

It will be interesting to see what comes of it. I’m intrigued with the techniques of Vermeer, who seems to me to be the real father of photography, or at least one of them.
