Das Mädchen mit dem Perlenohrring ( visu )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 51 libraries worldwide
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)

Trama: L'azione si svolge a Delft, in Olanda, nel 1665 A causa delle ristrettezze economiche della sua famiglia, la giovane Griet lascia la sua casa per entrare a servizio in quella del grande pittore Johannes (Jan) Reyniersz Vermeer (1632 - 1675): Griet è protestante, i suoi nuovi padroni cattolici. La ragazza, istruita dalla serva Tanneke, inizia a lavorare duramente: fa il bucato, pulisce, si reca al mercato a comprare la carne e il pesce La moglie di Vermeer è perennemente incinta; capofamiglia è l'arcigna suocera di Jan, che gestisce i rapporti col mecenate di quest'ultimo, Pieter van Ruijven, le cui committenze permettono ai Vermeer di tirare avanti. La moglie di Jan partorisce proprio mentre questi termina un dipinto per van Ruijven, che ne raffigura la consorte. Subito dopo, Vermeer inizia un nuovo quadro, stavolta senza committenza Pieter, il figlio del macellaio, mostra interesse per Griet: la ragazza non lo scoraggia, ma resta sulle sue. La suocera invita van Ruijven a un banchetto per ottenere una commissione: questi, che ha messo gli occhi addosso a Griet, chiede a Jan un dipinto che lo ritragga insieme alla ragazza lasciando intendere, in modo velato ma non troppo, che vorrebbe concupirla Vermeer, però, decide che ritrarrà Greit da sola: inizia, dunque, l'esecuzione del dipinto. Nel frattempo, dopo aver subito un tentativo di stupro da parte di van Ruijven, la ragazza si concede a Pieter, il figlio del macellaio. Dopo aver fatto indossare a Greit un orecchino della moglie, Vermeer termina il ritratto: il risultato è il celebre Ritratto di fanciulla, alla cui vista la moglie, tenuta fino a quel momento all'oscuro del lavoro in corso, fa esplodere la sua gelosia isterica nei confronti della ragazza, e la caccia di casa in malo modo
