• Thérèse Schwartze paints a portrait

    26 days ago - By Gurney Journey

    A Dutch portrait painter named Thérèse Schwartze (1851-1918) was invited to paint the daughter of the mayor of a coastal town.
    She packed up her portable easel and paints and set up in a temporary studio in the mayor's attic. Fortunately someone took photos of her at work.
    The girl sits in a chair facing a high window, supervised by a nursery maid. The artist's back is to the window.
