Janus Metsaars about his art: "In de vrije natuur vind ik veel inspiratie voor mijn werk. Landschappelijke ruimten, zee, aarde, regen, lucht vinden allemaal een weg in mijn schilderkunst. Ik ben vooral geïnteresseerd in processen, zoals bijvoorbeeld hoe een stroom water haar weg vindt door modder en zand, hoe een wolkenlucht verglijdt over een spiegelende vijver of openbreekt voor een helder blauwe lucht." ["I find a lot of inspiration for my work in the wild. Landscape spaces, sea, earth, rain, air all find their way into my painting. I am particularly interested in processes, such as how a stream of water finds its way through mud and sand, how a cloudy sky slides over a reflecting pond or breaks open into a clear blue sky."] (from the artist's website)

"Terry Southern and Larry Rivers were longtime friends and admirers of each other's work when Tatyana Grosman, founder and director of Universal Limited Art Editions, suggested that they collaborate on a project. (...) After Mrs. Grosman selected the fairy tale from among Southern's unpublished manuscripts, Rivers's long involvement with the book began. Although Rivers was essentially responsible for all the visual components, including the clever layout of the text, Southern did become involved aesthetically in the collaboration. In addition to choosing the 'fake arabic' typeface and the 'forest green' color of the elaborately crafted lacquered box, Southern enthusiastically offered suggestions to Rivers as to what elements might be added to enliven his prose. Likewise, Rivers asked a lot of questions of Southern about the meaning of the text."
