Title: Portrait of Matthew Huizinga

Artist: Manuel Joachim de Franca

Created: United States of America 1839

Location: Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, USA


The piece I was fortunate enough to recreate is titled the portrait of Matthew Huizinga, painted by Manuel Joachim de Franca is actually a mourning piece coming for a time when it was a popular art form in the 1800s. The portrait is dedicated to the mother of Matthew Huizinga, which can be assumed due to the graveyard setting and the book that the child is holding, in scripted “Remembrance from his Mother”. The mourning and loss behind the painting appealed greatly to the Romantic Era that is was created in.

Aurora showcases the never-ending, always-changing power of art and its ability to influence generations across time. The portraits in Aurora, by local photographers Ike and Tash, feature 19 young people from all over the South Sound. These portraits highlight youth as the subjects of remixed and reimagined versions of well-known works of art. The show empowers youth to see themselves in new ways and inspires young people to connect with works of art from other times and places.

Awakening. Genesis. Creation.
