Hidden women of history: Petronella Oortman and her giant dolls’ house

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

A 17th-century dolls’ house must number among the more unusual source “texts” through which we can find out about women’s lives in the past. Yet, for Petronella Oortman (1656-1716), this exquisite object forms an important window into the creative and imaginative life of a wealthy, married woman in Amsterdam.
