Obsession. Vermeer’s very famous painting of a young woman radiating against a dark background while, yes, wearing a pearl earring, is but one of nearly two dozen instances where the Dutch painter showed his fascination with pearls. The debate regarding his most famous painting, the one that has sparked title changes, restorations, books, plays, and films, is over which subject radiates more, the woman or the pearl?
