Dutch prime minister proudly presents Océ reproduction of Girl with a Pearl Earring to Indian counterpart

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte, while on a trade mission to India, offered the famous Dutch painting Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi. But naturally it wasn’t the original painting. It was a reproduction created with the Océ elevated printing technology.

With this technology, the texture of the original painting is recreated by jetting layers of ink on a surface. The brushstrokes are visible and tangible. In fact, these recreations are so close to the original that the Mauritshuis recently used one of them to temporarily replace the original Girl with a Pearl Earring while the original was taken down for research.
