GUESS WHO? Portrait of a Girl and Her Wet-Nurse

c. 1700
Onbekende meester/unknown master

Today we play "Guess who?" again. 

Our portraits have a lot to tell about themselves. Children's portraits also often contain a message. Who is the woman next to this child? Why do you think so?

 

  • Her mother
  • Her elder sister
  • Her nanny

For those of you who can't get enough and already want to experience the story of the history of portraiture, there is an exhibition catalogue available which can be sent to your home (for a fee).
