Sientje Mesdag-van Houten Photography • High Resolution Creative Commons Paintings
The female Dutch artist, Sina (Sientje) van Houten (1834–1909) was one of a kind. As a strong moral supporter to her husband, the famous Dutch marine painter Hendrik Willem Mesdag, she only began to draw after the unfortunate loss of her only child. Most of her paintings were of landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. Here, we've handpicked some of our favorite vintage flower paintings from Houten's career, all under the CC0 license for personal or commercial use.
