  • Herman Kip was born here in 1925 and nothing has changed since then, except the art he created in his later years which fills the house. It’s a genuine insight into how people used to live, nothing.....  more

  • Bachelor farmer patch. The time stood still in here. Not a lot of comfort or luxury, just good old farm life. Farmer Kip painted almost everything around him. Pretty peculiair. Token entrance fee...

  • Friendly staff, cheap and rich in history. You can visit the entire museum in half an hour.
  • If you're in the area, take an hour for it. You think quickly, this can paint a child, but appearances are deceptive. Take a good look at everything again. Farmer Kip never attended an art academy and painted from his thoughts and experiences. It is indeed a bit reminiscent of Yugoslavian naive art, in which perspective / depth, as applied in Western art after the Renaissance / Enlightenment, is resolved by placing things higher or lower in the painting. Nothing for the Rijksmuseum, but still, a snapshot of our Dutch local history, country life, war, nature and love.
