MadameRuiz Profile picture The endangered swan, after Jan Asselijn's 1650 painting.

A swan energetically defends her nest against a dog. The fight was interpreted politically in later centuries: the white swan was understood as the statesman Johan de Witt, murdered in 1672, defending the country against its enemies. This interpretation made the painting the first purchase in the National Gallery of Art (the forerunner of the Rijksmuseum) in 1800.

With this work, you bring an old master into your home, but in a more modern version because of the expressionist brushstroke.

The original is from the collection of the Rijksmuseum. The original can be seen there in the Gallery of Honour. Object number SK-A-4

I am MadameRuiz, and am an artist by profession. I hope to delight you with my work. Here in my profile, or on your wall :) Both are fun!

Will you let me know what you think of my work? I would love to get in touch with you. Also when you have one of my works in your home I am very curious about the end result in your interior.

I love everything that has to do with art, culture and creativity. Experiencing, creating, teaching and communicating. Through language, image, non-verbal and through the musical voice.

I became known for my commissioned ink portraits. My work was first shown to a large audience in the program VTWonen Weer verliefd op je huis (February 2021). I make many ink portraits of and for individuals; from pregnancy portraits, wedding portraits, child portraits, love portraits and family portraits to portraits of pets such as dogs, cats, horses and birds. These ink portraits are all handmade by the way, drawn and painted with east indian ink on watercolor paper.

In my shop at work on the wall you can order my Digital Art. Because I normally work almost exclusively on commission, my autonomous art via Digital Art is really a wonderful experimental outlet. This also means that I keep experimenting with painting techniques and collage techniques using Photoshop. Although I love to experiment, quality comes first
