Marie Jeanette de Lange was the chair of the Association for the Improvement of Women’s Clothing, which propagated hygienic and comfortable garments allowing women greater freedom of movement. In February 1900 she posed for Jan Toorop in her reform dress. His Pointillist style was ideally suited for a scintillating portrait of a modern woman on the threshold of a new century.
