There are lots of expensive things in this world. Phones, holidays, cars, homes; the list goes on & on & on. But what about calendars? Most of us will happily have a fairly cheap, little one to note down key events. However, a Miffy calendar is actually one of the world's most expensive.
Miffy's creator Dick Bruna often cites the 20th century artists Matisse and Mondrian as key inspirations behind his work. The paintings featured in his 1997 storybookMiffy at the gallery look very similar to well-known works by these two famous artists.
