Original artwork description from Rijksmuseum website (© Copyright - by Rijksmuseum -

A maidservant pours milk, entirely absorbed in her work. Except for the stream of milk, everything else is still. Vermeer took this simple everyday activity and made it the subject of an impressive painting – the woman stands like a statue in the brightly lit room. Vermeer also had an eye for how light by means of hundreds of colourful dots plays over the surface of objects.

Canvas Prints have the advantage of being relatively low in weight, meaning that it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for all kinds of walls.
  • The poster print (canvas material): The poster is a UV printed sheet of canvas paper with a granular texture on the surface. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin of something between 2 - 6cm round about the artwork to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
  • The acrylic glass print: A glossy print on acrylic glass, often referenced as a print on plexiglass, will transform your original work of art into décor. The artwork is being printed with the help of state-of-the-art UV print machines. The great benefit of a plexiglass fine art copy is that sharp contrasts and smaller image details become more exposed with the help of the very fine gradation of the print.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): This is a metal print made on aluminium dibond material with an impressive depth effect. Colors are luminous in the highest definition, the fine details of the print are crisp and clear, and the print has a a matte look you can literally feel.
