Gerard ter Borch - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

The Dutch painter Gerard ter Borch (1617–1681) was a slightly older contemporary of Johannes Vermeer. Ter Borch’s beautiful and evocative paintings were not only varied in subject but also unparalleled among his peers in capturing the elegance and grace of wealthy burghers, the shimmering surface of satin, the undulating rhythms of translucent lace cuffs, and the nuanced psychological interactions between figures in an interior scene.

Seated Girl in Peasant Costume

€37.00
In the 17th century this young woman in peasant clothing would have been instantly recognized as an unmarried country girl from her pinned-up plaits and red headband. Ter Borch’s model was probably Gesina, his half-sister. She posed regularly for him in various roles. c. 1650-1660, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Woman at a Mirror

€37.00
The impeccably groomed young woman glances up questioningly at an older woman in dark clothing. The lady’s facial expression is clear to see in the mirror before her.

Woman Playing the Theorbo-Lute and a Cavalier

€37.00
Ter Borch was an exceptionally gifted observer of social behavior as well as physical qualities, such as the surfaces of fine materials or the naturalistic arrangement of objects in space.
