Visit the Jopie Huisman Museum in Workum. Jopie was the kind of person that makes you believe in reincarnation. He was a dealer in rags and he saw beauty in the simple things. He managed to express this in the drawings he made of the old, the ugly and the worn-out things.
Jopie refused ever to sell his paintings. He died at the age of 75 last year. I hope his wish will be respected and his art will remain forever in the magnificent museum for us all to enjoy.

Photo: This underwear has been repaired time after time and Huisman managed to get every stitch on the canvas with great respect for the rag and the person who wore them.
