At the Groeneveld castle in my post of yesterday was a nice exhibtion about the dutch drawer and cartoonist "Peter van Straaten" .Between 1963 and 1970 he spent a couple of weeks during summer in the castle with other artists. He made many drawings of birds and nature an many of them are very humoristic. The text of the exhibition is "I don't know, just a bird".

This is a selfportrait with the 15 calendars he has made during the years.
More about the exhibition here.

5 opmerkingen:

  1. I watched the video..but I have lost most of my Dutch...that I knew!

    I like his self portrait...he looks like a bit of a character!...Janey

  2. The castle is a beautiful building. A good place to hold an art exhibition.

  3. That is a funny caption. Makes me think his work was in the style of Gary Larsen's Far Side.

  4. How wonderful it must be to be able to draw like this and what a great spot to be able to spend time drawing.

  5. Yes, the guy did have a sense of humor.
