Ask anything

  • Luka asked

    Is the painting exhibited in its original frame?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Luka, from checking our archive, we can only see that the painting was added to the collection in 1960 with the current frame. Without extensive provenance research however, we can't tell you if this frame was added by the previous owner, gallery or artist. Best, Tanja

More information

Three classical genres play an important role in the work of Alexej von Jawlensky: the landscape, the still life and the portrait. He depicted people from his immediate surroundings, but these are rarely portraits in the literal sense. This is also the case here. The woman's downward glance gives this picture an introvert character.
