Notes

Besides drawing and painting Jacoba van Heemskerck van Beest was also active in the filed of applied arts. The stained glass windows she created later in life receive a lot of interest to this day. As an example can serve the 2005 rediscovery exhibition at the Kunstmuseum, The Hague focused on this very medium in the artist's oeuvre. The exhibition revealed that the technique was a significant turning point for Van Heemskerck's artistic development which "marked the culmination of her quest to link the essence of colour to light" (from the website of the Kunstmuseum, The Hague).
