Alida Christina Assink, 1833


Portrait of Alida Christina Assink by Jan Adam Kruseman, 1833

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 setting with a hunting dog and a garden vase is derived from English models.
