“Common Foods” by Ryan Grutsch recreates “The Milkmaid” in acrylic paints. Grutsch replaces common foods in the original with foods from our era. “It shows how bright, fake and unhealthy the foods we eat nowadays are,” Grutsch wrote. "This is the first painting I've painted that can have a real meaning taken away from the piece. The thing I most pride myself on with this painting is that I never used black paint. I mixed every color using just the primary colors, and I hope to do many more paintings like this in the future."
