Dick Bruna

Hendrik Magdalenus (Dick) Bruna (Utrecht, 23 August 1927, the Year of the Rabbit) is a graphic designer, artist and writer of children’s books. Bruna is the second son of publisher A.W. Bruna and J.C.C. Erdbrink. Bruna married Irene De Jongh in 1953 and together they have three children. In the same year, Bruna published his first children’s book: De Appel (The Apple). In 1955, while they were on vacation at the Dutch seaside, Bruna drew the first story about Nijntje for his son, inspired by his son’s plush rabbit. Even now he’s in his eighties, Bruna still rides his bike to his studio in the city centre of Utrecht, where he writes and draws new picture books for children. His books are translated into over fifty languages, and especially in Japan, his books are very popular.

Dick Bruna (NL, 1927-2017)

Bruna’s oeuvre of children’s books is unrivalled, but Nijntje is his most famous creation: a white rabbit with human features. The first book about Nijntje was published in 1955. Up to now, over 30 booklets were published about her adventures, and they are translated into many languages. In recent years, the translation of Nijntje’s name is Miffy, Miffi or Mifi, Lâle (Turkish) and Coelhinho (Portuguese). The translated editions in The Netherlands (Frisian and Turkish) just call her Nijntje. At the beginning of 2007, the total number of children’s books published by Bruna was 120. Other famous characters are the piggy Betje Big, the bears Boris and Barbara and the dogSnuffie.

In his earliest period, Bruna’s style was influenced by the designers and painters of the Dutch school of De Stijl, such as Bart van der Leck, Piet Mondriaan and Gerrit Rietveld, and also by the painters Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.

There is a lot of speculation about the question why his figures have so much appeal for children, their parents and child care workers all over the world. Firstly, there is the absolute simplicity of his drawings, the black lineation, and the few, but clear ‘Bruna-colours’. Bruna always seeks to omit as many lines as possible and tries to keep only the simplest, but most striking essence. Secondly, the manner in which Bruna draws eyes is very important. Nijntje and the other characters always look the readers and viewers straight in the eyes, from within the drawing, even if they are doing something that requires their immediate attention, such as riding a bike or catching a ball. Only when Bruna draws his figures with their back turned to the readers, they don’t look them directly in the eyes. Dick Bruna: “I put a lot of work in drawing tears. I make two or three drafts, only to discover that one tear expresses so much more than a face full of tears.”

Furthermore, it is of the utmost importance that the lines Bruna strokes with his brush look frayed, for those who look at them with a magnifying glass. The lines should have a certain “tremble”, as Bruna calls it. “It’s all about a certain tremble (...) A good line has a good tremble. But that good tremble is the most difficult part. In that tremble; the artist is concealed”

Dick Bruna has received numerous awards, and countless exhibitions were dedicated to his work. On 18 February 2006, the Dick Bruna House was opened in Utrecht. This house is a part of the Central Museum, and it provides an overview of Bruna’s graphic work; at the same time it is also a place where children can draw and play around. In honour of the inauguration of the museum, a number of buildings in Utrecht were decorated with a set of ‘Nijntje’ rabbit ears. In the summer of 2007, on the occasion of his 80th birthday, Bruna received the gold medal of the city of Utrecht. Dick Bruna: “I have got some talent, and I have to work very hard to take the maximum out of it”

1953年にブルーナはイレーネ・デ・ヨングと結婚、その後3人の子供に恵まれます。同年彼の初の絵本『りんごちゃん(De Appel)』を刊行。1955年には海でのヴァカンス中に、息子のウサギのぬいぐるみからヒントを得て、幼い息子のために『ちいさなうさこちゃん(Nijntje ナインチェ)』というウサギを主人公とした字のない絵本をデザインしました。


彼の数ある絵本のうちでも、人間っぽい姿をした白いウサギのナインチェ(うさこちゃん)は彼の代表作であります。最初のナインチェの本は1955年に刊行され、現在までに30冊以上のナインチェシリーズが出版されています。彼の本はたくさんの言語に翻訳され、海外でナインチェはミッフィーミーフィラーレ(トルコ)など様々な名前で呼ばれていますが、オランダで翻訳され刊行された本に関してはそのままナインチェとなっています。日本においても、うさこちゃん”“ミッフィーとして、その愛くるしいキャラクターは、オランダに負けないほどの人気を博しています。2007年始めには、ブルーナの出版した絵本は総計120種類以上に登りました。ミッフィーの他には、『ぶたのうたこさん(Betje Big)』『こぐまのボリスとバーバラ(boris en barbara)』『こいぬのくんくん(Snuffie)』など、ブルーナにより創造された有名なキャラクターたちが沢山います。
