    Jonieke van Es, head of the Collection and research Sector, zooms in on the painting ‘Meal of Friends’ by Charley Toorop, a key piece of one of the most important Dutch painters of the first half of the 20th century. On this painting, Charley Toorop immortalised not only herself, but also others such as the poet Adriaan Roland Holst, the architect Gerrit Rietveld, the sculptor John Raedecker, the photographer Eva Besnyö and the painters Pyke Koch, Rachel Pellekaan and Wim Oepts. In addition, her three children can also be seen in this painting: her sons Edgar (also a painter) and John Fernhout (active as film-maker) and her daughter Annetje Fernhout.
