“This might be the first Dutch girl to have her picture taken in colour. The photographer, Jan Zeegers, was an Amsterdam textile merchant by trade, but this picture shows a definite eye for composition and colour – note the girl’s dress, the bow in her hair, and the cherries on the plate.” quoted from booklet of the exhibition guide: Gallery of Honour of Dutch Photography (June 2021)
