Portrait of Charlotte Beatrix Strick van Linschoten, Mattheus Verheyden, c. 1755

canvas, h 206cm × w 122cm. More details

Charlotte van Linschoten was the second wife of Gerard Cornelis van Riebeeck. She is shown here dressed in her finery. Her décolletage is visible above the plunging neckline of her dress, which is worn over a tight-fitting corset. Because silk fabrics were relatively narrow, her skirt is made up of several widths. It is obvious that the patterns to the left and right of the seam at lower centre do not match up.
