Veth was young and still living at home when he portrayed his three sisters with painstaking honesty. His father assessed the likenesses of his daughters with equal candour: ‘My opinion of these portraits is, and will always be, that they are excellent likenesses, which are anything but flattering, and there are a few sharp edges, which I would rather have seen some-what softened.’
