Susanna van Collen née Mogge and her daughter, 1776


Susanna van Collen née Mogge and her daughter by Hermanus Numan, 1776

Susanna Mogge is seated in front of a portrait of her deceased husband, Ferdinand van Collen, half-covered by a dark curtain. She is about to be married again, to Hendrik Muilman, a wealthy banker from Amsterdam. Her room is fashioned in the neo-classical style. The curvaceous commode is still rococo in feeling, but its gilded mounts show classical motifs.
