Melkmeisje (Milkmaid)
painting of a man enjoying a painting by Johannes Vermeer

Gerard Boersma
acrylic on panel (masonite)
35 1/2" x 27 2/3" or 90 x 70 cm

On Vermeer's Milkmaid we are presented with a working environment featuring rough walls, roughly textured bread, bare wood, coarse baskets, and a maid with blunt features, rough hands and forearms.

But she is diligently focused on the task making an appetizing dish for the household. The only movement and sound being the flow of milk into the bowl. It seems to be Vermeer's way of paying tribute to the virtues of temperance, purity and hard work. And to me that makes the painting radiate this quiet calm as I'm sure it does to my figure as well.

Melkmeisje is an original, 100% handmade painting and comes with a hand signed Certificate of Authenticity. The painting is signed at the back and front.

Shipping takes about two weeks no matter where you live in the world. You'll receive your painting safely packaged in a wooden crate and ready to install immediately.

kind regards, Gerard Boersma
