Note: At the time this painting was made, Oepts' talent was already noticed by fellow artist Charley Toorop (1891-1955). He followed her style of painting and before long they became friends. Toorop even portrayed him in her well known group portrait of artist friends, titled The meal amongst friends (1932-1933), which belongs to the collection of Museum Boijmans van Beuningen (acc.no. 2045 MK).
