I love paintings by Vermeer. So when I heard that his “Milkmaid” was on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art from the Rijksmuseum, I knew I would have to go there to see it. Today, Lisa and I took a day trip down to NYC.
It was everything I had expected. Better. It is, in fact, a truly beautiful painting: sculptural, brilliantly colored, sympathetic, honest, compelling. I’m so glad that we had the chance to see it.

We also just barely missed seeing the lead women run through Central Park at Mile 24. Oh well, some other time.
