More information

This painting was acquired by the museum just two years after it was completed. This shows that Willink was recognised as an important artist very quickly. In comparison with his later illusionistic virtuosity, this painting is fairly crude. However, the alienating effect is very successful. Willink has depicted himself on the left, turning to face the viewer.
