Als Hausmädchen kommt die junge Griet (Scarlett Johansson) in das Haus des holländischen Malers Johannes Vermeer (Colin Firth) und ist fasziniert von seinen Werken. Der Künstler spürt sofort Griets Begeisterung und intuitives Verständnis für Malerei. Obwohl die beiden Welten, Bildung und sozialer Stand trennen, fühlen sich Magd und Meister zueinander hingezogen. Das besondere Verhältnis der beiden bleibt nicht unbemerkt und wird von Vermeers Ehefrau mit Eifersucht und Argwohn begutachtet, von Vermeers Schwiegermutter (Judy Parfitt) und Mäzen (Tom Wilkinson) hingegen schamlos für eigene Zwecke ausgenutzt. Heimlich fertigt Vermeer ein Portrait von Griet - eines der grössten Meisterwerke aller Zeiten. Doch für den Künstler und seine Muse hat dies fatale Folgen. (Quelle: Umschlag)

Das Mädchen mit dem Perlenohrring ( Book )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Im 17. Jahrhundert wird die 16-jährige Griet als Hausmädchen bei dem berühmten Maler Johannes Vermeer eingestellt. Der Meister zeigt sich von dem durchaus klugen Mädchen angetan und macht sie mit der wunderbaren Welt der Malerei vertraut. Schließlich soll Griet ihm sogar für ein Bild Modell sitzen. Doch dies wiederum führt zu Konflikten mit Vermeers Ehefrau, deren Tochter, der Schwiegermutter und der Magd. Zu allem Überfluss hat es auch noch Vermeers Mäzen auf Griet abgesehen... Schriftstellerin Tracy Chevalier ließ sich bei ihrem gleichnamigen Roman von dem anonymen Mädchen aus dem Gemälde des niederländischen Meisters Vermeer inspirieren. Regisseur Peter Webber belebte in seiner Verfilmung jene Zeit wieder und schuf seinerseits ein Meisterwerk, dessen Bildkompositionen fast allesamt so wirken, als hätte sie Vermeer selbst entworfen. Mit hervorragenden Darstellern - allen voran Scarlett Johansson ("Lost in Translation") - erzählt Webber hier die mögliche Geschichte, die sich hinter dem berühmten Vermeer-Gemälde verbirgt."
