A Spinner

1700 - 1730. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

The girl’s rags, which signal her poverty, contrast with the cheerfully elegant way she handles the thread. This novel representation of a woman performing a domestic task anticipates the delicacy with which this subject was treated by painters like Chardin, and which later changed in the early nineteenth century into a more realist form of depiction, as in Goya’s Allegory of Industry.
