oil on canvas, h 92.2cm × w 81.7cm More details

The plums in the basket and the woman’s subtly exposed shoulder imbue the painting with an erotic undertone. The type of hat atop her head was mostly worn by Romani women at the time. Such hats were worn at the court in The Hague during costume parties and parades. Van Everdingen enjoyed recognition at court, having received several commissions from it.
