o 'Land of manure and mist, of dirt, cold rain' - thus began the most famous weather poem in our literature, a century and a half ago. And many Dutch people still flee, if possible, to a 'more beautiful', because sunnier climate.
This book shows that not only evening reds and spring blooms can produce beautiful art, but also all forms of less pleasant weather. It is not only raining in this book, it is snowing, it is fogging, the wind is blowing, it is icy, it is freezing, the thunderstorms that it is dear pleasure. Almost all great artists and poets have transformed that famous 'ugly' Dutch into timeless works of art. But this book also presents many surprises from the lesser known corners of poetry and art history. The result is a sample card, a treasure room and a fairytale book at the same time. From PC Boutens and Remco Campert to Menno Wigman. From Pieter Bruegel and Isaac Israels to Dick Bruna.
