A breaking down of Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring that shows the perspective of the modern girl in the vision of the 1960s Hippie culture. Similar elements such as the head scarf, earring, and the posture remain while hair becomes loose and the clothing becomes contemporary. The background becomes bright yellow conducive to Hippie culture. All of those elements become a part of drawing in the not so-far-of connections of the modern girl and the 17th century peasant girl.
