At the request of Bart Rutten and Marja Bosma of the Centraal Museum, the Utrecht artist Kees Wennekendonk drew five great Utrecht artists of the last century. Pyke Koch, Gerrit Rietveld, Dick Bruna, Peter Vos and Joop Moesman.

To get a good idea of ​​the personalities and characters, Kees has spoken extensively to children, grandchildren, and stepchildren. Viewing a portrait of Wennekendonk is like travelling through the lifes of the portrayed.

A nice extra detail for visitors: find a hidden miffy in Bruna's portrait and a chair in Rietveld's.

The portraits can be seen until 19 January 2020 in Expo 6 of Centraal Museum Utrecht.
