Completely immersed in her work, a maid pours milk. Apart from the white milk jet, nothing seems to be moving. Vermeer combined this everyday act into an impressive painting - the figure stands free in the light space like an image. Vermeer had an eye for how the light plays over the objects in hundreds of colorful dots.

Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675)

Nowadays Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) is one of the most famous Dutch painters of the 17th century, but for centuries he was hardly significant. The small oeuvre that is now known about him has long been attributed to others. It was only rediscovered in the 70s of the 19th century. Since then 35 paintings have been recognized as 'Vermeers'. Johannes was the son of a silk worker and has always lived and worked in Delft. Just like his father, he was active in the art trade. Possibly he was a student of fellow townsman Carel Fabritius. In 1653 Vermeer registered with the guild of painters, of which he was head for several years. Vermeer's early history pieces show the influence of Utrecht caravaggists. His later work consists of interiors with one or a few people, usually women. Intimate genre pieces, in which the main character devotes himself to an everyday activity, usually at a window that lets in the daylight. Vermeer was able to display the light on objects like no other. The Rijksmuseum owns three of its domestic scenes and one cityscape: the world-famous Street. Anton was born in Zaandam. At the age of 16 he was apprenticed to the cattle painter Pieter Frederik van Os in Haarlem and then to the horse painter Wouter Verschuur. Together with Paul Gabriel, Mauve often went out into nature to paint. From the age of twenty he worked in Oosterbeek, where many artists resided. In 1871 Mauve moved into a studio in The Hague. There he briefly gave Vincent van Gogh, of whom he was a cousin by marriage, painting lessons. From 1882 he often worked in Laren in the summer, where he went to live in 1885. His work was already known and loved by collectors from home and abroad. In America, Mauve's sheep flocks in particular were popular, with a distinction between 'sheep coming' and the slightly cheaper 'sheep going'. With its moody, atmospheric landscapes with cattle, Mauve is counted among the Haagse School. (Source Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam)
