'Girl With the Pearl Earring' special stop in Atlanta

Posted: Updated:

It's without a doubt one of most famous works of art in history. It's inspired a best-selling novel and an Oscar-winning film – not to mention countless artists throughout the years.

And now, for the first and possibly the final time, "Girl with a Pearl Earring" is displaying in Atlanta. Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken went to the High Museum of Art to see it as part of an exclusive first look at the mesmerizing masterpiece.

Even if you know nothing about art or art history, you've likely seen the "Girl with the Peal Earring." Her classic face is found on even common items like T-shirts and tote bags.

Now, through an amazing stroke of luck, the masterwork is in Georgia for the summer.
