This small book joins together the creations of two men working three hundred years apart.
The tale from the autobiography of Joannis Van Loon, doctor of Rembrandt Van Rijn, tells of his adventures when he traveled to visit Nieuw Amsterdam in the recently settled continent of America in 1650.
The drawings and paintings come from the work of independent artist Johannes von Gumppenberg, taken mostly from the time when he lived near the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania, during the last quarter of the 1900s.
Two "Johanneses," far apart in time, developed themes that share much in common and hopefully will provide enjoyment for the reader.
