Het regent, het regent, by Nelly Bodenheim

Nelly Bodenheim was a Dutch painter and illustrator from Amsterdam. In the first half of the 20th century, she illustrated several books, often in silhouettes, such as 'Handje-plak' (1900), 'Het regent, het zegent' (1901), 'Raadsels' (1902), 'In Holland staat een huis' (1903), '12 Sprookjes en rijmpjes' (1908), 'Luilekkerland' (1915), 'A.B.C.' (1917), 'Groen groen grasje' (1923) and 'n Vruchtenmandje' (1927). She also made designs for needlework, posters and book covers.

Together with a group of Art Academy friends, she formed the artistic group the Amsterdam Joffers. They held several collective expositions and were rolemodels for a new generation of female artists.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
