Head of a Young Woman, Frans van der Mijn, 1756

Head of a Young Woman, Frans van der Mijn, 1756

oil on canvas, h 53.5cm × w 42.2cm More details

Frans van der Mijn was just a child when he moved with his father Herman to London, where he would make a career for himself. This painting is not a portrait, but an idealized, imaginary rendering of a young woman. The use of brown, grey and white tones imitates graphic art. With this painterly device, Van der Mijn showed off his artistic skills.
