Portrait of Lizzy Ansingh, Thérèse Schwartze, 1902

canvas, h 78cm × w 62cm. More details

Lizzy Ansingh and Thérèse Schwartze belonged to the Amsterdamse Joffers, a group of women painters active around 1900. Schwartze was the undisputed star and enjoyed great success with her fashionable society portraits. This informal likeness of her niece Lizzy Ansingh is one of her best. The contrast between light and dark convey intimacy, and the swift, vigorous brushstrokes and red accent on the bright green dress radiate power.
