Portrait of a Girl Dressed in Blue by Johannes Cornelisz Verspronck (c. 1600-1662) oil on canvas, 1641. depicts an adorable child dressed in her Sunday best? As was the custom of the day, the young girl is portrayed as a small adult lady. That she is playing a role is betrayed only by her facial expression. Unfortunately, we know nothing about her identity or her family. Perhaps she resided in Haarlem, like the portraitist Verspronck.
