After a design by Cornelis Pronk Dutch

Not on view

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. The drawings were sent to China and Japan from Batavia in 1736. 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.
