Katinka Lampe / Salomon de Bray

Salomon de Bray
Young Woman Combing Her Hair
ca. 1635
oil on canvas
54 x 46 cm
Musée de Louvre, Paris

Because of the light-dark contrast and the zoom-in on the model, the painting of Salomon de Bray obtains intimacy. It draws our eye in. It makes us voyeur of the scene. 
The model in my painting has a confronting look. ‘Look at me, I’m wearing a blonde wig, I am fully aware of my appearance’.
