Since its founding, Louis Vuitton has been the master-packer for some of the most precious objects in the world. This year, true to its passion for creation and strong support of the arts, the Maison has teamed up with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam to transport one of the museum's most important pieces: Johannes Vermeer’s "The Milkmaid". On the occasion of the exhibition “Making the Difference: Vermeer and Dutch Art” at the Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo, the world renowned masterpiece travelled in a bespoke Louis Vuitton trunk from its home in the Netherlands to Japan.
The Milkmaid, sometimes called The Kitchen Maid, is an oil-on-canvas painting of a “milkmaid“ or maidservant pouring milk, entirely absorbed in her work. Except for the stream of milk, everything else is still. Vermeer took this simple everyday activity and made it the subject of an impressive painting – the woman stands like a statue in the brightly lit room. Johannes Vermeer’s paintings are considered among some of the most precious artworks in the world, and are kept in the world’s finest museums. Being entrusted with the masterpiece's safe transport across the world is an honor and testament of Louis Vuitton's heritage of quality craftmanship.
Louis Vuitton created a special-order trunk to transport "The Milkmaid" by Vermeer from Amsterdam to Tokyo.
