The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer
On the painting the milkmaid stands in the middle of a room. To her right a window can be seen, through which light enters. There is also a table with a tablecloth, on which there are different goods. Amongst these goods is a Wicker basket with bread, a jug, a plate and copper pot. The milkmaid has her attention aimed at the jug she is pouring milk in. Exempting the stream of milk, nothing seems to move. The right side of the sparsely furnished room has a foot-warmer depicted. That the room has a past is made clear by the wall behind the milkmaid. There are holes in the wall and there is a nail jutting out.
The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer was auctioned in 1765, when Leendert Pieter de Neufville sold the collection. In 1908 the work was purchased by the Vereniging Rembrandt for the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, where it currently resides.
