Note: Hartjesdag, literally translated as "Day of Hearts", was a Dutch festivity celebrated on the third Monday in August in the Dutch areas of Haarlem, Bloemendaal and the Jordaan neighbourhood in Amsterdam. After it developed itself into a type of cross-dressing carnival, where men dressed as women, and women dressed as men. During the German occupation in 1943 the Hartjesdag became prohibited, and after the war it eventually became obsolete. Presumptively the dressed lady on this painting is the artist's wife, Cécile Maks-Boas.
