“Her” is a reconstruction of Johannes Vermeer‘s ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ (1665). This piece differs to the original by incorporating a portrait of a black woman, who wears clothes symbolic to bright African patterns and a headscarf to match. As the past year has highlighted the importance of unveiling black history, reimagining an important historical art piece highlights the uncovering of history. The reference photo for this piece was taken by @photosbyleumonde on Instagram.
