update: Ruurd Wiersma, Four Seasons


 

In my post of december 10, 2009 I wrote about Ruurd Wiersma (1904-1980),  the Frisian outsider artist who in his later years decorated the four walls of his house in Birdaard, in this way making a quadrilateral mural of the four seasons. Ruurd Wiersma also made some 300 paintings, mainly on hard board, that made him known as a naive painter.

His house nowadays is a museum.

Local tv of Leeuwarden, the capital of Frisia, has a weekly program about local and regional features. In may 2011 they had an item about the Ruurd Wiersma museum.

Rather interesting. But it's all in dutch.
