todayisartday The Girl with a Pearl Earring might not wear... a pearl earring. This is the conclusion of the astrophysicist and artist Vincent Icke in the December issue of the New Scientist magazine. He argues that it looks more like polished tin than pearl on the grounds of the specular reflection, the pear shape and the large size of the earring.

What do you think? Did Johannes Vermeer paint a pearl or a tin earring? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
