Johannes Vermeer

The Milkmaid Bag, 1658-60 & IRMA BOOM DNA 19

Luminescent yellows. Bold blues. The lightest of whites. Representational on one side, abstract stripes by Irma Boom on the other. Commissioned by the Rijksmuseum, Boom spent ten years deconstructing the museum’s paintings to create a DNA of six colours that make up the painting. It’s totally different with Irma Boom’s modern take on Vermeer’s 17th century masterpiece on this tote bag. © Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

Richly-colored ruminations. Serene interior scenes. Marvelous luminosity. 17th century Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer was well-known during his time, but became world-famous long after his death for his delicate depictions of domestic life. Irma Boom has been described as the "Queen of Books".
