On December 1, 2010, the cultural legacy of Marten Toonder (all the work created by Marten Toonder himself) was officially transferred to the Museum of Literature in Leiden by his heirs, and has been the property of the Dutch government ever since. In November 2018, the archives of Marten Toonder Studios were donated to the Museum of Literature in the Hague and the Eye Film Museum in Amsterdam. See the last photo.
Due to the events described above, there is no chance that further original works from this estate made by Marten Toonder himself and Marten Toonder Studios will be offered “on the market”.
"In Holland staat een huis" was made in 1943 by Marten Toonder Studios as an advertisement (short) for Kabouter-jenever from Distilleerderij Herman Jansen, Schiedam. Among others, Marten Toonder and Hans G. Kresse (the famous artist of Eric de Noorman) worked on the creation of the commercial in 1943.
Years ago, it turned out that a few original film cels from 1943(!) had been preserved. Unique, as celluloid was a valuable material at the time; cels were usually cleaned after use and reused for the next scene.
This lot concerns one of those original film cels made by Marten Toonder Studios in 1943. The cel is in good condition. A few small spots of paint of Pinneke Proost have been lost in the last 77 years.
The cel from 1943 is completely authentic (not restored) and is still in good condition. A genuine, beautiful Toonderian gnome with the name Pinneke Proost.
