Portrait of Margaretha Tulp


Oil on canvas, 138 x 104 cm

Staatliche Museen, Kassel

Incidental features in the painting identify this young woman as Margaretha Tulp. The pearls other jewelry and on her dress - a pearl being margarita in Latin - refer to her forename, and the tulip in the background to her surname, Tulp. Margaretha Tulp (1632-1709) was the daughter of Nicolaus Tulp, the famous Amsterdam physician and surgeon.
