If Rembrandt is the master of light, then Vermeer is also the master of light. The difference is that Rembrandt use the artificial light describes the mysterious darkness, and Vermeer use natural light. The former is more suitable for expressing an atmosphere of old age, hardship and tragedy, while the latter always gives people a quiet and comfortable feeling. Even a trivial depiction can be pleasing to the eye. Just like this painting, The Milkmaid. The morning natural light pours gently from the window on the right side of the character, infiltrating everything in the room. The temperature of the morning light is cold. Cold make people feel static, solid, fresh. The blue tablecloths, golden bread, even tan milk cans all present in a simple, quiet and elegant atmosphere. Light on the white wall behind the maid forms a clear halo. In front of the maid is a dark shadow, and behind her is bright, such light brings out the characters. People can’t help but focus on her.
