Girl with a red hat

About This Project

There is a widespread hypothesis that the woman portrayed in Girl with a red hat in fact, Mary, one of Vermeer’s daughters. Sitting on a chair with dandelion ornaments, the woman gazes at the viewer, her eyes having a glow that contrasts with the shadow offered by the hat’s wide brim.

Montoya faithfully painted this reproduction in every detail, even painting it in oil on panel, like the Delft master did.
