After 1900, Toorop returned to a brushstroke technique and even to an Impressionist style. He used these mainly for portraits, which were much more broadly made than those of twenty years before. He painted more portraits of men than of women and seldom showed a woman 'en face'. This portrait has a highly feminine expression. The seated person lived for many years in Veere in Zeeland. She was married to the art critic Albert Plassaert, who in 1925, published a monograph on Toorop. Another, but
smaller portrait of Lucie van Dam van Isselt, is now part of the collection of the Gemeentemuseum, The Hague.
