Milkmaid by momamo

Milkmaid

Delft’s most famous painter is Jan Vermeer, this statue is made after the well known painting “ the milkmaid” ( Rijksmuseum A’dam) by a contemporary artist ( Wim T. Schippers). Personally, I don’t care for it very much ; probably, because the monochrome, flat shaped concrete doesn’t compare to what the painting evokes ... It has been been moved 3 times throughout the city and in this setting, it has a kind of quiet charm, I think.
A modern and minimalist interpretation !

Lovely shot, I think it fits in very well in its surroundings. The brickwork and stone makes a sympathetic backdrop. I get what you mean though, it is quite a basic statue.

Het heeft wel iets, maar ik vind het origineel heel veel mooier.

I quite like the lines of the statue but the face is disturbing. I'd love to see more of the building behind it. The brickwork is lovely :)

Like Merrelyn, I too am more interested in the building behind ;-)

Interesting history behind the statue... great shot... love the composition. The building behind the statue is really interesting as well.

If it makes people go looking for the painting, it may have served its purpose.

A big contrast to the old walls of the church!

It's interesting. The painting is so evocative, this seems a little bland, I agree with you.

Wim T. Schippers heeft altijd een lange neus na de gevestigde kunst wereld getrokken. Neem maar zijn pindakaas vloer. En Barent Servet.

Interesting and that they don’t mow around it - lol — such a contrast of textures against the building

I can see the resemblance, but it doesn’t have the vibrant color of the painting. i like how you have the textured brick as a background.

A little bit of contrast. I prefer old walls. Great shot.

seems this statue has found its home. Love the brickwork of the building behind
