Theme Giant Bulb – Jan Steen
The theme of this Giant bulb is Jan Steen Warmond. Nicoline choose a typical ‘Jan Steen household and made a colorful painting with modern props from Warmond. Through the window left you can see the parc ‘Leerust’ with tea cupola and historic sailing ship named ‘Hylke Tromp’. Through the opening at the right you look at the historical tower, cows and the stork’s nest of Warmond. All around she painted a piece of peel of the tulip bulb to make the art complete.
