Portrait of Alida Christina Assink, Jan Adam Kruseman, 1833

oil on canvas, h 206cm × w 149cm. More details

Dressed in the latest fashion, Alida Assink poses here for the society painter Kruseman. The clothing gives her a stylish silhouette: broad shoulders, puff sleeves and a hoop skirt make her waist seem very slim. The large belt buckle further accentuates this. Kruseman admired English portraiture. The rural set-ting with a hunting dog and a garden vase is derived from English models.
