About this artwork

Susanna Lunden (1599-1643) was the offspring of Antwerp tradesman Daniel Fourment, who had a well-established friendship and business relationship with Sir Peter Paul Rubens. The subject's large, dark eyes are not directed towards us, and are hidden by the shadow cast by her hat. This hat led to the artwork being nicknamed 'Le Chapeau de Paille' or 'The Straw Hat'. This title was attached to the painting long before it was purchased by the National Gallery, though it's unclear how it got this name because the hat is obviously not straw. It's possible that the term 'poil' ('felt' in French) was misinterpreted as 'paille' (straw) in an inventory or catalogue where the artwork featured. This print has been colour matched to the actual painting and has been authorised by the National Gallery. Each purchase aids the museum's operations.

About the artist

Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) was a Flemish Baroque painter, draughtsman and diplomat. He is considered one of the most influential artists of the 17th century, and his works are well known for their dynamic composition, colour and movement. Rubens was a highly successful court painter and diplomat, and was knighted by both Philip IV, King of Spain, and Charles I, King of England. He was also a prolific artist, producing over 2000 works in his lifetime. His style was heavily influenced by classical art, and he was a master of the use of oil paint. Rubens was also a highly successful art collector, and his collection of Italian Renaissance art was one of the largest in Europe.
