Between 1893 and 1896 George Hendrik Breitner painted thirteen pictures of a girl wearing a red, white, or blue kimono.

The canvases are among Breitner's best-known works. The model, Geesje Kwak, was only sixteen years old when she posed for the first time. Her young, innocent face and slender body contribute to the atmosphere of tender sensuality. In 2016 all thirteen versions were shown together for the first time at the Rijksmuseum. This afforded an opportunity to determine the order in which the "kimono girls" were painted.

This publication also features the sketches, studies, and photographs that Breitner made of Geesje.
