Cornelis Kruseman

Girl with an Orange

Oil on canvas (relined). 63.5 x 53 cm.
Signed lower left: C. Kruseman.

Cornelis Kruseman was occasionally referred to as "the Raphael of the North", which is understandable in the case of this painting, as it appears to be inspired by Raphael's portrait of Bindo Altovito. Kruseman travelled to Switzerland in 1821 and then came to Paris, where he visited the studios of Jacques-Louis David, Horace Vernet and Antoine-Jean Isabey, among others. Back in the Netherlands he settled in The Hague in 1825. He spent the years 1841 to 1847 in Italy. He returned to The Hague from 1847 to 1845, and afterwards moved to Lisse, where he remained until his death.
His pupils included Herman Frederik Carel ten Kate and Raden Saleh.
