Hindeloopen is the name of a small village in the northern area of the IJsselmeer in the Netherlands. This style of painting was born in the 17th century, and even now there are a small number of craftsmen with workshops in town where they continue to produce traditional painted furniture. In this style, flowers, birds, arabesque patterns and other designs are painted over serene base colors of red, dark blue and green, giving off a sense of calm and grace. The author, Mika Miyamoto, first encountered this style in Hindeloopen 30 years ago. Motivated by the retirement of popular artists, Miyamoto has compiled this volume in an effort to preserve a vanishing Hindeloopen.
