The painted caravan

Zwolle artist Jeroen van Doornik painted the 'Herman Brood caravan' on the occasion of the 'year of Herman Brood'. Brood (1946-2001) was a Dutch musician and painter; due to his artistic and commercial success in the 1970s and 1980s he was called "the greatest and only Dutch rock 'n' roll star". He was also a so-called enfant terrible, known for his hedonistic lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock 'n roll.
The caravan is part of the current exhibition "Zwolle in the '70s and '80s" in the Zwolle City Museum. Herman Brood was born in Zwolle.

  2. Colourful work. We don't use the word caravan here in that context.
