Completely absorbed in her work, the maid pours milk. Other than the white stream of milk, nothing seems to move. Vermeer managed to transform this mundane act into an impressive painting - like a statue, the girl stands in a bright room. Vermeer had an eye for how lighting in hundreds of coloured dots shone on his objects.
