Rien Poortvliet

Rien Poortvliet (1935 – 1995) was a successful Dutch illustrator and storyteller in drawings since 1960. His publication of the book ‘Gnomes’ (1977) with Wil Huygen led to international recognition and cemented his reputation for delicate and whimsical drawings that still appeal today.

His Gnome drawings have proven a firm favourite since becoming a feature of Artwerk Press collection in 2014, appealing in their nostalgic simplicity to the imagination, and inviting a momentary slip into the fantastical world of childhood.
