Vermeer's Milk Maid

http://mystudios.com/vermeer/9/vermeer-milkmaid.html 14/08/06

I watched the movie "Girl with a Pearl Earring" last night. It is a very moving story; yet another complicated love story; but it ends fairly well.
One thing I particularly notice is that the pretty Scarlett Johansen is very good at making quiet characters interesting.

What I liked best is that I always remembered the painting of the milk maid, and I did not know Vermeer painted it, but I recognised his style instantly. That's the talent of a true artist, that prooves his style was unique to his hand. A brush genius.

You just brought back fond memories of art appreciataion class and going to see small theater years back.

Terrific artist it's easy to get lost in the subtle details of those paintings.

You may want to check out the movie Smoke it seems like it would fit in with your tastes.
