Thérèse Schwartze: lecture about painter who felt for the case of the Boers - 8 June

Lecture about the painter Thérèse Schwartze, by Cora Hollema.

During her life, Thérèse Schwartze (1851-1918) was a celebrated artist who linked her great technical skill to an exceptional business sense. She was able to portray the nineteenth-century  Dutch beau monde and the Royal House with its non-Dutch qualities, with which she earned millions. Internationally she also established her reputation with countless exhibitions and assignments throughout Europe and the United States. This made her a successful artist and an example for a generation of female painters after her, especially the Amsterdam “Joffers”, including her niece Lizzy Ansingh.
