Tracy CHEVALIER: "I have always loved Vermeer's paintings"

La ragazza con l'orecchino di perla (Girl with a Pearl Earring) (Neri Pozza, 2000): "I was lying in bed one morning, worrying about what I was going to write next (writers are always worrying about that). A poster of the Vermeer painting Girl With a Pearl Earring hung in my bedroom, as it had done since I was 19 and first discovered the painting. I lay there idly contemplating the girl's face, and thought suddenly, 'I wonder what Vermeer did to her to make her look like that. Now there’s a story worth writing'. Within three days I had the whole story worked out. It was effortless; I could see all the drama and conflict in the look on her face. Vermeer had done my work for me".
