Petronella Oortman

1656 - Nov 27, 1716

Petronella Oortman was a Dutch woman whose elaborate dollhouse is part of the permanent collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Her dollhouse was the inspiration for the 2014 novel The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton.
Petronella Oortman should not be confused with her close namesake Petronella Oortmans-de la Court, who as it happens was also the owner of a noted dollhouse now in the collection of the Centraal Museum, Utrecht.
