The milkmaid

About This Project

Flemish baroque art regularly portrayed the female figure to criticise the vices of bourgeois society in a hidden manner. However, in The milkmaid Vermeer offers a pure and virtuous view of the work carried out, exquisitely lighting a setting that is truly Vermeerian

Montoya treats this reproduction with fascination, conjuring his Vermeer within completely and portraying the pouring milk with a mastery worthy of the Flemish master.
