Icy landscapes and idyllic winter scenes: There can be no Dutch Christmas without Anton Pieck. Throughout the course of his life, this beloved artist published over 300 books with drawings inspired by the 19th century. He also created numerous paintings for calendars and Christmas cards, all reflecting the work of Charles Dickens. From 21 November until 31 December, the Land van Valkenburg museum will exhibit a selection of his work. Visit www.museumlandvanvalkenburg.nl for more information about tickets and opening hours.
