Ton Smits Huis

  Jacob Reviuslaan 25      (+31) 402 11 47 86     more than a year ago
Two years after his death, Dutch cartoonist and artist Ton Smits was finally honoured with his own museum in 1983. Easily recognisable, as it's probably the only bright blue and pink villa in the entire Netherlands, the museum is open only one day of the week, so you'll have to plan accordingly of you want to view his lifetime collection of 20,000 drawings and a few dozen paintings. Although his paintings have won awards, he is more renowned for his simple cartoons, which are much more accessible to the general public. As early as World War II, Ton Smits was already mocking Holland's Nazi occupiers, but after the conflict had ended his talent was rewarded by leading national Dutch newspapers who published his cartoons. Later still he gained international recognition when he began making impressive cartoons for The New Yorker. Although he never fulfilled his dream of being a circus clown, Ton Smits' drawings achieved the same goal - making people smile.
