Ruurd Wiersma, the painting milkskipper
In the museum you see a splendid specimen of naive painting.
The retired milk skipper Ruurd Wiersma lived here, untill his demise on december 15th 1980. He changed his livingroom into a large and colorfull panorama. Walls, Ceiling, furniture…… nothing in the house escaped from the paintbrusch of this driven amateur painter.
Ruurd Wiersma created about 300 paintings.
