A Classic Baroque Painting "The Milkmaid" - artwork that has passed into the public domain and makes wonderful gifts and other products.
This domestic scene is classic Vermeer in its use of colour and light. Known variously as "The Milkmaid" "Maidservant Pouring Milk" it considered by many to be one of his most beautiful and entrancing works.
Johannes (or Jan, or Johan) Vermeer was a Dutch Baroque painter who is known for his distinctive palette of blue and yellow. Van Gogh was influenced and quite intrigued by Vermeer, calling him a "strange painter" whose palette "consists of blue, cornflower yellow , pearl grey, black and white." Vermeer's work typically shows portraits and scenes from domestic life, and he has gone from obscurity to becoming one of the most admired painters of his era.
