‘Vrouwen die brouwen’: The Life and Work of Maritge Claesdr Vooght
As a result of a one-sided perspective and the lack of surviving information, historians and art historians have long had a blind spot when it comes to seventeenth-century women. This is why Maritge Claesdr Vooght’s life, and that of many other portrayed women in the museum, remains invisible. In addition to the standard methodology – traditional archival and literature research – studying the marginalized in history requires more attention to circumstantial evidence. This paradigm shift could potentially bring to light stories like Maritge Vooght’s, enabling us to write more inclusive and equitable histories.
