About me:

In 2008 I was guest curator of the exhibition Black is beautiful. Rubens to Dumas. Important advisors: Elizabeth McGrath (Rubens and colleagues, Warburg institute Image of the Black in Western Art collection), Carl Haarnack (slavery in books), Elmer Kolfin (slavery in prints and paintings) en Adi Martis (contemporary art). Gary Schwartz made his research for The Image of the Black in Western Art available to me.

In 2014 my essay ‘Painted Blacks and Radical Imagery in the Netherlands (1900-1940)’ was published in The Image of the Black in Western Art Volume V (I). (ed. David Bindman, Henry Louis Gates jr.)

In 2017 I published a book about the black servants at the Court of the Royal Van Oranje family. More than a thousand documents have been found about their lives. (only in Dutch)

  1. Hallo Esther,

    Wat weer een mooie en intrigerende portretten en beelden. Weet jij meer over het portret van de donkere vrouw? Wie heeft het gemaakt? wie is zij? Wanneer? En wie verkoopt het? Ben heel benieuwd.

    Groet! Ineke

  2. Hi Esther, nu ik beter kijk: is het een afgeknipt portret waar deze donkere dame op staat? Gr. Ineke
