Two Girls Blowing Bubbles, Jacob Maris, c. 1880

Two Girls Blowing Bubbles, Jacob Maris, c. 1880

brush, h 465mm × w 334mm More details

Two of Jacob Maris’s daughters, probably Tine and Henriëtte, are blowing bubbles. Maris often used his children as models for these atmospheric sketches, which were intended for sale. These watercolours were never meant as portraits; the idea was to create the feeling of atmosphere and light. The artist captured the colours of the bowl and the table in the soap bubble.
