Rijksmuseumkrant (Rijksmuseum newspaper)

In 1999, after an exhibition in the district office in the southern part of Amsterdam, an article about Milkmaid was published in the Rijksmuseum newspaper. In the section old / new there was a nice article in which Het Melkmeisje, self-portrait from 1993, was compared with the real Milkmaid: the Kitchen Girl from Vermeer. Milkmaid from 1993 was printed on a then revolutionary technique: a photocopy transferred to T-shirt cotton with transfers. It was a completely different process at that time and the photo layer was very thick on top … a somewhat sticky surface.
