Between 1893 and 1896 George Hendrik Breitner (1857–1923) painted 13 pictures of a girl wearing a red, white or blue kimono. His model was Geesje Kwak, only 16 when she posed for the first time. In 2016 the Rijksmuseum presented all kimono girls together for the first time. This was a unique opportunity to study the making of these iconic masterworks.
