Museum

: "Girl With a Pearl Earring, the “Mona Lisa of the North,” was lost for two centuries. Then, a collector bought it for a mere 2 guilders (less than $1) and only realized it was a Vermeer after it had been cleaned. When the collector died in 1902, the painting was donated to the Mauritshuis Museum."
