Mice and Delft Blue

Some draughtsmen/woman I noticed at Kunstmuseum The Hague – the museum had the happy inspiration to engage people to make childrens artbooks to go with a number of  exhibitions. Why is it that I like the stuff done for kids so much? 

Ingrid and Dieter Schubert did a book about Delft Blue, featuring intrepid mice in a series of very funny drawings (above).

Kaatje Vermeire did a book about Monets garden, also a gem (below).

The Voorlinden museum –  a recent visit – had Louise Bourgeois and Anselm Kiefer. While both are interesting and profound and challenging, I left that particular museum wishing to know what would make these artists laugh …. and if they ever laughed at all.
