Sint Elisabethsvloed

The mural shows the ‘Haagse dike’ that could be found on outskirts of the former municipality of Princenhage. The dike was of great importance to the village and saved it from the Saint Elisabeth flood in 1421.

Annexed 75 years ago

In 2017 the foundation ‘Princenhage – Village in Breda’ remembers the fact that Princenhage was annexed by the city of Breda 75 years ago. It was clear that local artist Frans van Veen was the right choice to paint a mural to be reminded of this anniversary.

Frans van Veen has been an artist in Princenhage for over 40 years and has become a familiar face around the town. Frans came to Princenhage to study photography at the AKV | St. Joost in 1969 but quickly found out that his heart was with the art of painting landscapes.
