The Milkmaid shows Dutch tiles with Cupid

Did you know that the world famous painting ‘The Milkmaid’, made by Johannes Vermeer, shows several Dutch tiles? In the lower right corner a number of tiles are visible, including one depicting Cupid.

At the time the painting was made (c. 1658 – 1661) these tiles were still fairly new, but luckily for us some of them survived the past 350 years.

A few years ago we had the privilige to provide several similar tiles for an exhibition together with the original painting.

Our current collection of tiles with Cupid can be found here.
