Lady at Her Toilet, 1667, oil on panel, 75.5 x 58 (29 3/4 x 22 3/4), Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam


Lady at Her Toilet

Dou's painting presents the typical "upper-class" subject of a woman primping before a mirror as her maid dresses her hair. The refined surroundings, which reflect the influence of Vermeer, Gerard ter Borch, and Frans van Mieris, include a luxurious tapestry curtain, a richly upholstered chair on which the woman sits, tooled leather wall hangings, an elaborate ewer and basin, a marble wine jug and footed cooler.
