Ton Smits House, Eindhoven

Ton Smits House, Eindhoven

Ton Smits House is the former home and work place of the famous catoonist and painter who worked for the best American newspapers. The design of the building was created by Fons Vermeulen, a modern architect who was hired by Ton Smits when he decided that he needed a personal, spacious home studio. The style of the structure is simple, yet modern and unusual, like Ton Smits's works. The artist's house was transformed into a museum and exposition hall in 1983, two years after his death. Nowadays, visitors can admire about twenty thousand sketches and ready cartoons as well as several hundred paintings. Besides his works, there are many things related to the artist such as photographs, awards and documents. On Wednesdays the museum is open from 11.00 to 17.00 and by appointment.
