‘Johanna’ (The mothers before) is a portrait inspired on Johanna Hulft (1649-1698), immediate ancestor of mine, 12 generations back. Aged 21 she married Pieter Rendorp (1648-1699), brewer in Amsterdam, shipowner in Norway and the Baltic Sea.
To introduce our ancestors to my daughter and tell their stories, I make paintings inspired on them. In the series ‘The mothers before’ I explore the women who made me come into this world. Knowing more about family connections, previous generations, historical events and other interesting related facts can help put your own life in perspective in order to learn more about yourself. A world from a bygone era brought back to the present unfolds.
‘Johanna’ is a painting on linen canvas and was produced in 2021 by artist Jitske Schols. All paintings are unframed unless otherwise stated. Shipping: Pick up by appointment at the artist’s atelier in Amsterdam.
