inspiration: Harriët van Reek

Today I visited the exhibition Edith & Egon Schiele
In the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag: a fantastic exhibition
with drawings of one of my favourite illustrators: Harriët van Reek

Harriët made a children art book inspired by this painting
It is the only painting of Schiele exhibited in the museum.

The exhibition shows original illustrations from the book
and also prelimanary studies Harriët made for Edith & Egon Schiele

It is very nice to see the painting style of Schiele back in Harriët's drawings.
She also made the text for the book and both (drawings and text)
are full of humor and delicacy. It's touching too.

This is book number 10 in the series of children picture art books (in dutch) which are published in cooperation with the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.

To my dutch readers:
Als je in de buurt bent, zou ik zeggen, gaan!!!
Ik vond het echt dik genieten :-)
