(Arthur K. Wheelock Jr., “Godefridus Schalcken/Woman Weaving a Crown of Flowers/c. 1675/1680,” Dutch Paintings of the Seventeenth Century, NGA Online Editions, https://purl.org/nga/collection/artobject/131947)
ID: The focal point of this painting is a modestly dressed woman who appears sitting near a stone ledge. She is caught in the midst of daydreaming as she weaves a flower crown. Aside from the bright main figure, the dark background features two lovers seen from afar. A stone fountain featuring cupid atop frames the image.
