Meet the early 20th-century Jopie from Haarlem, who was immortalized by the American artist Robert Henri, resembling the style of Hals.
The magazine, produced and designed by Studio Room (known for Dutch magazine LINDA.), is beautifully executed with many reproductions of fantastic works by Manet, Van Gogh, Liebermann, Singer Sargent (and many others) and of course Frans Hals.
