Not just miffy…
Dick Bruna (1927-2017) is one of the most famous Dutch illustrators in the world. We know him as the father of miffy and the designer of book jackets for thousands of crime novels and literary thrillers within the range known as “Zwarte Beertjes”. However, had it been up to Dick’s father, he would have become a publisher in the family business A.W. Bruna & Zoon. How did Dick Bruna realise his dream to become an illustrator instead? How did miffy come about? How did she become a worldwide phenomenon and who and what were Dick’s artistic influences? Which techniques did he use? What role did the Zwarte Beertjes play in his oeuvre? What are the hallmarks of Dick Bruna’s style? All these questions and more are answered in this exhibition.

Workshops
In addition to the exhibition, there are fun workshops for everyone from toddlers to pre-schoolers and from high school students to adults.
