Hello! I am back with Wordless Wednesday where I share with you some artworks that I love. Today, I’ve got an artwork that I have always loved. There is something about this painting that just makes me smile.
Frans Hals is a portrait painter from the Dutch “Golden Age.” (Think the same time period as Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Leyster). He just had such a great ability to capture a spirit and life in his portraits. I wonder if the joy you can find in his paintings was inspired by his large family. With 13(ish) kids, he had a lot of little smiling faces to be inspired by!
You can see more of the artwork of Frans Hals and read more about him on the Met Museum’s website.
