Collection: Animal life in Artis 1939

Between 1903 and 1940 you could collect pictures by purchasing Verkade products and paste them in special albums. These Verkade albums came to an end due to the Second World War.

These pictures come from the album 'Animal Life in Artis' by Verkade from 1939. In total there were 90 small pictures, 5 medium and 6 large pictures in the album.

The pictures contain painted drawings of different animal species in Artis, but also images of people together with animals.

The album was written by AFJ Portielje and the pictures were painted by C. Rol, J. Voerman Jr. and H. Rol.
