Despite their idiosyncrasies, these people are still likable. All the details are typical of Marius van Dokkum’s work. There’s so much to see! His paintings often have a funny side. Van Dokkum believes that humor makes art more accessible.

Anatomical theater

The Marius van Dokkum Museum in Harderwijk opened on 26 May 2018. It is housed in one of Harderwijk’s most striking buildings, the University of Harderwijk’s former anatomical theater. Professors of anatomy would teach their students during dissections. After a thorough renovation, this remarkable location was turned into a museum dedicated to the work of a living artist.
