About the Show:

To commemorate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's voyage up the river that would come to bear his name, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has lent out Johannes Vermeer's The Milkmaid to the United States for the first time in 70 years. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is famously located in the former colony of Nieuw Amsterdam and owns five other Vermeers, was chosen for this honor.

All five canvases have been rehung and temporarily reunited with The Milkmaid, along with a select group of other Dutch Baroque works from the Museum's holdings.

Vermeer's Masterpiece The Milkmaid is on view from September 10 through November 29, 2009 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
