Time in a Painting
Why do we want to look at paintings? Why is it important? Does it connect us to Time: an intangible dimension and makes it more tangible? An object can do that for us, make time appear to be more tangible so that we can see it or touch it. But to transform to 1665, which is when the oil masterpiece, “Girl With A Pearl Earring” was painted by Dutch Painter Johannes Vermeer you do have to go to de Young Museum in San Francisco where you can witness first hand “time” in a painting.
