Dick Bruna Prints

Dick Bruna was born in Utrecht in 1927 and is one of the Netherlands most celebrated artists. His most famous character miffy – the little white bunny he created in 1955 – is an international icon, whilst his picture books are loved by children worldwide and have sold over 85 million copies. His illustrative style is distinctive: bright, colourful and minimal. “What matters to me is reducing everything to its essence so that no line is redundant. That is the strength of simplicity: the art of omission,” he says. The dick bruna huis is a new museum in Utrecht dedicated entirely to his work.
