MODERN TIMES {Opulence}

MODERN TIMES {Opulence}
by Justine Tjallinks


This portrait is inspired on the portrait of 'A young woman warming her hands over a brazier: Allegory of winter' by Caesar Boëtius van Everdingen. What makes the original painting special is that he chose to depict winter featuring a young woman of wealth. This was very uncommon at the time as winter settings were usually painted showing the elderly or poor. I chose this beautiful young woman to translate that portrait to modern times.
