Blue Gown- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Kees Van Dongen

Blue Gown
painting of woman enjoying painting by Kees van Dongen

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm


The Dutch painter Kees van Dongen married Augusta (Guus) Preitinger in 1901 and painted this almost life-sized painting of her the following year. She gazes provocatively through her eyelashes, her hand placed nonchalantly on her hip.

Working with areas of solid colour and bold contrasts is a typical feature of this artist’s work. The painting was directly inspired by Van Gogh’s bright colours and expressive brushwork.
