Johannes Vermeer The Milkmaid magnet. Oil painting on canvas circa 1660. A beautiful depiction of a Dutch kitchen, Vermeer’s The Milkmaid captures middle class northern European life with grace and mastery. The milkmaid pours milk from one jar into a larger pot surrounded by various loaves of fresh bread, a blue drape, and a basket. The woman herself wears a white headscarf, yellow bodice, and blue and red skirt with green sleeves. A great gift for fans of Johannes Vermeer, Baroque painting, and Dutch art.
