Pieter Wenning - Malay Quarter - 
The Bo-Kaap (lit. "above the Cape" in Afrikaans) is an area of Cape Town, South Africa formerly known as the Malay Quarter. It is a former racially segregated area, situated on the slopes of Signal Hill above the city centre and is a historical centre of Cape Malay culture in Cape Town. The Nurul Islam Mosque, established in 1844, is located in the area.
Bo-Kaap is known for its brightly coloured homes and cobble stoned streets. The area is traditionally a multicultural neighbourhood, and 56.9% of its population identify as Muslim. According to the South African Heritage Resources Agency, the area contains the largest concentration of pre-1850 architecture in South Africa, and is the oldest surviving residential neighborhood in Cape Town.
Pieter Willem Frederick Wenning (9 September 1873 – 24 January 1921) was a South African painter and etcher, considered to be the progenitor of the style of Cape Impressionism.
When De Bussy opened a branch in Johannesburg, they approached Wenning to manage the art department. A larger salary lured him, but the monotony of the work soon proved unbearable. When, in July 1913, De Bussy's gave him an opportunity to visit the Cape Province, he welcomed it. He brought with him etchings and reproductions by French and Dutch masters, visiting leading Cape artists and collectors in the hope of interesting them. It was amongst these visits, that he became acquainted with D. C. Boonzaier who would become his patron and guiding influence.
In Johannesburg he befriended Ernest Lezard, George Smithard, a leading painter in Johannesburg, the architect Joseph Michael Solomon, Anton van Wouw and Paul Methuen.
After a failed attempt to start his own venture, an art shop on the corner of Eloff and Plain Streets, he took a position at his friend Van Schaik's bookshop in Pretoria. D. C. Boonzaier came to his aid by persuading several of his friends to guarantee a sum of money sufficient to enable Wenning to work in the Cape for three months. Ernest Lezard would launch a similar fund later in the year.

So the Dutch government just collapsed
Yeah. That happened. What happened is that the government accused people who got childcare benefits of fraud (using ethnic profiling to boot) and forced them to pay back all the money they had received (aka: an awful lot of money) to pay for daycare. Said "fraud" was actually false accusations or minor things like forgetting to sign a dotted line, things like that, that catapulted many families into debts, poverty. Oh, did I mention this happened like 12 years ago? Yeah, those parents have had to suffer a government witch hunt for more than a decade.
Around Christmas a (big) rapport on this was released and the government decided to resign today.
Let me repeat that: The entire Dutch government has resigned. Every single minister and secretary has quit. This is a big f*king deal.
Gosh, I'm so relieved. This is a huge blow to the VVD (biggest and factually most corrupt party currently in government, also: neoliberals) and a huge relief to anyone affected by this sh*tty excuse for governance.
