Dutch Girl at Breakfast, Jean-Etienne Liotard, c. 1756

painting, h 46.8cm × w 39cm More details

One of Liotard’s few paintings in oil and even rarer genre pieces, this work is his most concrete homage to the Dutch masters of the 17th century. Liotard has composed an interior reminiscent of those depicted by Vermeer and De Hooch, but with modern, 18th-century Dutch furniture. It is possible that he was inspired by a stay at Delft, where a cousin was a pastor of the Huguenot church. The painting in the background shows the interior of the Nieuwe Kerk there.
