The Jopie Huisman Museum in Workum is dedicated to the life and works of self-taught Frisian painter Jopie Huisman. Love of nature, compassion, but also giving value to otherwise insignificant objects; this is the human approach that is the central thread that runs through his very versatile body of work. Jopie transports you into his world and tells you all about his passion.
