Marie Jeanette de Lange chaired the Vereeniging voor Verbetering van Vrouwenkleding (Association for the Improvement of Women’s Clothing), which propagated hygienic, loose-fitting, natural clothing that allowed women greater freedom of movement. In February 1900 she posed at home, seated and dressed comfortably, for Jan Toorop. Using tiny dots of colourful paint, the artist created a sparkling portrait of a modern woman on the threshold of a new century.
