is for Vermeer
Johannes Vermeer was a Dutch painter of domestic interior scenes of everyday seventeenth century life. Vermeer worked slowly and with great care, and frequently used very expensive pigments. He is noted for his skillful portrayal of light. He was a reasonably successful painter in his lifetime, but he left his wife and children in debt at his death. Nowadays Vermeer is most famous for his painting Girl with a Pearl Earring.
This simple picture of a woman with a milk jug inspired this poem:-
As long as the woman from Rijksmuseum
in painted silence and concentration
day after day pours milk
from the jug to the bowl,
the World does not deserve
the end of the world.
