Girl with a Pearl Earring
oil paint on canvas
Zhanna Vishnevskaya, MD

This oil painting is an original reproduction of the famous painting by Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675), Girl with a Pearl Earring, which is housed at The Mauritshuis in The Hague, The Netherlands. Every artist has been encouraged to copy works by renowned masters to better understand the skill and spirit that inform a great artist’s vision.

All medical practitioners know their jobs can be demanding and overwhelming. Recharging daily is necessary for continuing to work like a genius and having a balanced life. Dr Vishnevskaya has found that painting is the best way to refresh her mind. Aside from painting, she enjoys playing guitar, writing, and learning languages.

Dr Vishnevskaya is a Physician in the Department of Family Medicine at Pinole Medical Offices in CA.
