Wageningen University & Research - Image Collections

About this collection

These original drawings were made for a short instructional film on how to work more efficiently and ergonomically in the ornamental horticulture business. They were made by Fiep Westendorp, the famous illustrator of Dutch children’s books like Jip and Janneke, the cats Pim & Pom. The envelope that they were found in stated that the drawings were made by Pien Sprenger, the daughter of Wageningen University horticultural professor A.M. Sprenger (1881-1958). In the envelope a handwritten contemporary text mentions the credits of a film with illustrations by Fiep Westendorp.

 

The Wageningen Institute for Horticultural Technology (I.T.T.) was asked in 1965 by the Dutch Association of Floriculture to do a study for best practices in working methods. While a booklet was published with illustrations made by someone else, we don’t know if the film with Westendorp’s drawings was ever made.
