Star of David paper cutting by Anna Maria van Schurman

Image Information

This intricate paper cutting by Anna Maria van Schurman features the Star of David at the center and the monogram “AM” at the top and bottom. Paper cutting was popular among noblewomen and amateur artists in van Schurman’s time and it is likely she learned the skill from one of her female family members.
