Judith Leyster (1609–60), depicted here in a c. 1630 self-portrait, was a Dutch Golden Age painter who mostly made genre works, portraits, and still lifes. Born in Haarlem, she had begun painting by the age of twenty. By 1633 she had joined the Haarlem Guild of St. Luke, the first woman to become a member. In 1646 she married Jan Miense Molenaer; only two of her works are known to have been completed after this marriage.
