More About Johannes Vermeer’s The Milkmaid
Showcasing his excellence in depicting household domestic scenes, Vermeer drafted this painting using subtle impasto techniques.
Small shadows of sunlight entering from the window can be witnessed on different utensils, broken pieces of bread and the table cloth as well.
These details justify about Vermeer using pointillist technique in his paintings very often.
The color scheme of the painting comprises of yellow, blue and white in different shades predominantly.
Vermeer has used yellow color in its opposite nature. He has used yellow to darken and dull the ambience of the room. A balance blend of black alongside would’ve been his option to go for.
On giving a closer glance, small points are evident on every subject of the painting. These pointelles depict the use of Camera obscura by Vermeer, which he has used in his other paintings as well.
The overall composition of the room is a bit damp. This is a deliberate step taken by the artist in order to highlight the central subject and make nuances more visible at a glance.
Depiction of Maid is done with an essence of realism. She is not beautified or idealized, yet the painter managed her appearance to be graceful to some extent.
The devotion shown on the maid’s face is exemplary of woman performing domestic tasks with utmost determination. Vermeer has idealized the maid’s traits instead of her physical appearance.
This is one of the finest nuances Vermeer has portrayed in this painting.
She is likely to be preparing bread pudding as the ingredients shown suggest. It’s a Dutch delicacy and requires attention to detail. Hence, the dedication shown on the maid’s face.
It’s one of those artworks, which can add an essence of realistic art to your living/dining room.
