The „Young Girl from Friesland“ the north-western region of Germany, with her lovely blond hair seems to have caught Nolde’s attention, so he painted her portrait. Since he did not make sketches, he probably asked her to sit for him. Her delicate face has no hint of a peasant about it, her hairdo seems modern. Maybe it was that about her appearance, which caught the artist’s fancy.
