Every once in a while the Museum Meermanno in the Hague (The Netherlands) brings a new temporary exhibition. This time they show the works of Quentin Blake, an artist, who had illustrated multiple books, including stories by the world-famous author Roald Dahl.
The exhibition is very kid-friendly and invites everyone to join the creative process. Another thing that impressed quite a lot is that you can see different steps of the creation of illustrations and concepts, that later appeared on the pages of books.
Here is a short video I made after my visit:
Exhibition De vrienden van Quentin Blake: Matilda, Mr. Stink en de Minpins is open until the 3rd of March, 2019.
By the way, unlike the previous temporary exhibition, here all the descriptions were given not only in Dutch but also in English.
