Check out this article about Miffy, (a famous bunny character created by a Dutch artist, Dick Bruna. The article discusses Dutch children's illustrators, exhibits of their work at the Eric Carle Picture Book Museum in MA, and will later be at the USB Gallery in NYC.
You'll have to sign up to read the NYTimes online article, but it's free and worth it. The exhibit at the USB Museum is called:
"Dutch Treats: Contemporary Illustration From the Netherlands," an exhibition of about 80 works by 14 children's book illustrators whose forays into whimsy have beguiled readers of all ages for half a century.
