Literature: Tegenbosch, L. & M. Koekkoek. Charlotte van Pallandt. Beelden en Tekeningen. Zwolle, Waanders, 1994, p. 138, nr. 136 (illustration of another cast)

Notes: Charlotte van Pallandt was one of the few female sculptors of her time, contributing to the thrive of sculptural art after 1945. Van Pallandt executed this sculpture of Queen Wilhelmina as the mother of the people, in a pose that shows courage and determination. Winston Churchill said about her during the war: “There is but one man and that is Queen Wilhelmina”. The robust triangular figure typifies Wilhelmina, wearing a long coat with a fur collar and a hat almost covering her face. With her arms straight by her sides, she makes a resolute impression. For the design Van Pallandt used photographs of the queen taken during the unveiling of the war monument by Mari Andriessen in 1958. A larger stone version and a bronze were installed as monuments for Queen Wilhelmina in Rotterdam and The Hague. This sculpture, considered one of her most important, strengthened Van Pallandt's position as one of the leading Dutch sculptors. Wim Pijbes, former director of the Rijksmuseum: "Van Pallandt liet een groot oeuvre na, waarvan dit haar meesterwerk is" [Van Pallandt left an extensive oeuvre, of which this is her masterpiece] (NRC Handelsblad, 25 April 2020).
