The Milk girl! Milk girl! I finally saw you! OMG!
To be accurate, it is The Milkmaid. A famous oil painting. One of the treasures in Rijks Museum, Amsterdam. Drawn by a Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer in 1660.
The explanation besides the painting was well written, ‘Except for the stream of milk, everything else is still.’ It’s truly a moment of eternity.
‘Pouring Milk’ just took a few minutes but this daily casual activity became eternal art under Vermeer’s brushes. I was sharing a slice of eternity when I standing and grazing in front of this beautiful painting. It was such an honour and happy moment to see the Milkmaid!!
It was lovely to meet the Angry Swan too. To be accurate, it is The Threatened Swan. A famous oil painting. One of the treasures in Rijks Museum, Amsterdam. Drawn by a Dutch painter Jan Asselijn in 1650.
The snowy white body stretches to maximum with open wings because of strong emotion. It is in a firm standing position. Although it is a swan in the painting but I as a human can feel its high spirit. This painting is just like an adapter connecting two species (Swan & Human) together in eternity. Art is really amazing!
The collection in Rijks Museum is mainly ‘Classical’. The admission fee is not cheap but worth a visit. The museum is big, with a good display and value collections. It really worth a whole day for Rijks Museum：）
