Girl in a White Kimono, George Hendrik Breitner, 1894

Girl in a White Kimono, George Hendrik Breitner, 1894

oil on canvas, h 59cm × w 57cm × d 11cm. More details

Inspired by Japanese prints, Breitner made at least twelve paintings around 1894 of a girl in a kimono. She assumes different poses and the kimono often has a different colour. What catches the eye here is the embroidered, white silk kimono with red-trimmed sleeves and an orange sash. The dreamy girl is sixteen-year-old Geesje Kwak, a hat-seller and one of Breitner’s regular models.
