Tracy Chevalier and a painting by Vermeer
THE NOVELIST AND THE PAINTER
Many of you have heard about or have read this novel by Tracy Chevalier : 'Girl with a Pearl Earring', in which she imagines 'WHO' the model in the painting by Vermeer was.
Surely everyone has enjoyed her writing, as well as her imagination.
' A Young Woman seated at a Virginal ' .
I thought : "Well , if Mrs Tracy Chevalier herself is speaking , it must be the best I can find ! " ... Hmmm ... I must say it was more difficult than I expected !
Doesn't she say that a Master sometimes makes mistakes ? All the same a famous writer does not speak very clearly at times !
Anyway ! Her speech is interesting enough to merit that you listen to it until you can fill in the gaps with the right words. It's worth it!
Lots of thanks to Ian for being so helpful with the video.
