I am sure a lot of you know the painting ‘Girl with a pearl earring’ in The Hague, painted by Vermeer.
But do you know what painting is next to it in the room?
It’s a head scratcher.
‘Mother combing her child’s hair’. Not too noteworthy, right?
Except she is not holding a comb.
The sub title is ‘Hunting for Lice’.
I wonder if that was deliberate to keep the line moving after you study the Girl with a pearl earring. Though the painting is beautiful in its own right.
