Jopie Huisman, The Rembrandt of Friesland

Workum (NL) - You do not have to be an art expert to be impressed by the work and the colorfull life philosophy of the Frisian autodidact painter Jopie Huisman. The world famous painter Rembrandt van Rijn would be, if Jopie lived 400 years ago, fascinated without any doubt about his artistic presentations. They are incredible.  

And those who do not like art at all, but do like a juicy view on life centered by clutter and nature, individuals and culture, those people will also return satisfied after a visit to the Jopie Huisman Museum in Workum (Friesland, Nederland).

The recently renovated and with a museumcafé enriched museum, where is 2009 also three autodidact colleagues ’stayed’, collects, preserves and exhibits drawings, paintings and inspiration sources of the old iron and rag merchant who lived from 1922 until 2000. In addition to that the art domain offers a generous look into the exciting life of the hearty painter who clung to hand-rolled cigarettes, humor, art, music, interesting stories and tricks of - often famous - friends. Take your time otherwise you will be hardly able to take it all in!
