Girl in a Large Hat, Caesar Boëtius van Everdingen, c. 1645 - c. 1650

oil paint, h 92.2cm × w 81.7cm. More details

The girl with her exotic, broad-brimmed sun hat and suggestively exposed shoulder offers the viewer her basket with fruit: the erotic message is unmistakeable. The painting was originally intended to hang high up on the wall, above a door or mantelpiece. This explains why the girl looks down at us.

On display in room 2.11 Caesar Boëtius van Everdingen
