The Milkmaid

The Milkmaid (Dutch: De Melkmeid or Het Melkmeisje), sometimes called The Kitchen Maid, is an oil-on-canvas painting of a “milkmaid”, in fact, a domestic kitchen maid, by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer. It is now in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, which regards it as “unquestionably one of the museum’s finest attractions”. According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, it was painted in about 1657 or 1658. Jan Vermeer; October 1632 – December 1675) was a Dutch Baroque Period[3] painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of middle-class life. During his lifetime, he was a moderately successful provincial genre painter, recognized in Delft and The Hague. Nonetheless, he produced relatively few paintings and evidently was not wealthy, leaving his wife and children in debt at his death.Vermeer worked slowly and with great care, and frequently used very expensive pigments. He is particularly renowned for his masterly treatment and use of light in his work.

The Tea Daughter

Life on Earth, life in a city, life in a village,
Life inside, life outside a house, women’s
role revolves around work. Milkmaids or
tea daughters, women are made as maids
painted exposed, uncovered, is it the color?
or the sight of flesh? the eyes devour in the
name of art?
This is the Way of Seeing nature,in human form
expulsive,vulgar beauty, shame?
women work everywhere the same, but painted
in another way-
This is the way of seeing?
