The Dutch East India Company, which dominated the export of Chinese porcelains to Europe in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, commissioned the Dutch artist Cornelis Pronk (1691–1759) to supply designs that could be copied on porcelain intended for export. This design of a lady with a parasol was one of Pronk’s most popular compositions, and was employed by Japanese porcelain painters as well.
