Johannes Vermeer's painting Girl with a Pearl Earring inspired Tracy Chevalier's classic novel of the same name, which sold more than two million copies. The beautiful film version of her story, starring Colin Firth and Scarlett Johansson, was nominated for eight Bafta Awards and three Oscars.

Send your answer marked Earring by email to or on a postcard to Harvey McGavin at Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX. Entries close August 18.
