Girl in a white kimono by George Hendrik Breitner
The painting Girl in white kimono shows a portrait of a fragile 16-year-old girl, living in the neighborhood called the Jordaan. She sold hats for a living and was named Geesje Kwak. In the painting Geesje is positioned on a divan in a relaxed, but also in a bit forced pose. Around her somewhat oriental interior pieces are positioned, giving the room some tranquility. George Hendrik Breitner portrays her in a sort of onedimensial way, her head bending left. The composition diverged from Breitners more rough style and is painted in a stable style, just like the rest of his kimono paintings. These works are more intimate and contains less movement than his common style works.
Geesje Kwak is painted 12 times by Breitner. There is also a painting, called Girl in red kimono, representing Geesje in an equal pose, one of her sitting in front of a mirror and one where she is laying on the floor. The kimono paintings are often bases on pictures Breitner made.
