Welcome to the wonderful world of El Pintor
Until the 22nd of September 2019.
This exhibition is created especially for children aged 4 to 10.
The exhibition is based on a series of successful children’s books and games that were made in the Netherlands between 1941 and 1946.
The author of the books is called ‘El Pintor’, an alias for Jaap Kloots and Galinka Ehrenfest who were persecuted for their Jewish origins during WWII.
Part of the proceeds were used to help people in hiding.
The stories of El Pintor stimulate childrens fantasy. The exhibition aims to do the same.
Children are welcomed to “travel” to foreign countries, there is a house where they can swim, draw on walls and bake sand cookies.
Or they can build their own cities!
The exhibition texts are only in Dutch. Come and visit El Pintor until the 22nd of September.
