The Milk Maid – Jan Vermeer

“Equisite”
Jan  Vermeer
is the word that comes to my mind looking at
this painting from circa 1658 by the Dutch
painter Jan Vermeer. I find this “snapshot” of
daily life so touching, showing the beauty in
such an everyday situation as a milkmaid
pouring up milk in a bowl.

The painting can be found in Rijksmuseum, Amterdam.
