Johannes Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" 1665) - "Certainly the way Vermeer captured subtle changes of light and focus seems to anticipate photography: some features appear in focus, while others seem out of focus, and objects are depicted with a foreshortening that resembles that seen in photographs -- this is perhaps one reason why he appeals to us today."

"The Goldfinch," in Dutch 'het Puttertje' was painted by Dutch artist Carel Fabritius in 1654. It inspired Donna Tartt's new novel of the same name.

Painting by Carel Fabritius THE GOLDFINCH I didn't think I liked this book at first but it's the type of story that stays with you, that you think about long after you've finished it and it haunts you until you come to realize what an amazing story it really is. It revolves around this stolen painting. Poor little bird. Tethered to its perch.
the goldfinch the basis of the story by donna tartt (which, I'll confess, I gave up after 100 pages). This is the painting by Carel Fabritius in 1654. Oil on panel. 13.25x9 inches. A student of Vermeer.
Carel Fabritius-1622-1654 The Goldfinch 1654. One of my favourite paintings - it is at the centre of the new Donna Tartt book - The Goldfinch.
