Portrait of a Girl Dressed in Blue, Johannes Cornelisz. Verspronck, 1641

oil on canvas, h 82cm × w 66.5cm More details

Why is this portrait so popular? Because it depicts an adorable child dressed in her Sunday best? As was the custom of the day, the young girl is portrayed as a small adult lady. That she is playing a role is betrayed only by her facial expression. Unfortunately, we know nothing about her identity or her family. Perhaps she resided in Haarlem, like the portraitist Verspronck.
