Dutch Girl by Paul Outerbridge (c. 1938)

The photograph titled “Dutch Girl” was created by artist Paul Outerbridge around 1938. This image features a half-length portrait of a woman. She is wearing a traditional Dutch bonnet on her head, which is crisp and lace-like, offering a sharp textural contrast to her soft skin. The woman’s gaze is directed downwards, and she appears contemplative or inward-looking. The lighting highlights her form and the contour of her face, while the background provides a soft, neutral backdrop that does not distract from the subject. The overall composition, color palette, and mood of the photograph exhibit characteristics typical of the time it was taken, reflecting a particular style and aesthetic that Outerbridge was known for during his career.
