Sinterklaas at the Kunsthal

Typically Dutch. Until December 10 on display at OMA's Kunsthal in Rotterdam: Sinterklaas wrapping paper from the 1920's until now. History in paper: changes in quality of pulp, design, and a shift in subject matter (from emphasis on the saintly Bishop to his ghost-busting helper Pete) through eight and a half decades.
