This sculpture is one of the best known works by the hand of Van Pallandt, of which other casts are in the collection of the Rijksmuseum and the Frans Hals Museum. Journalist Max van Rooy mentioned this work in his article for the newspaper NRC Handelsblad on 14 January 1994: “De name of Charlotte van Pallandt may be well-known, also because she is from a noble family – a handicap for an artist, especially for a woman, habitually called a clay modeling countess – but how well-known are, besides Wilhelmina, her sculptures, the series of the famous model Truus Trompert, her phenomenal portraits with that of Mrs. Duintjer as inimitable highlight?”.
