Nawal Benaissa received political asylum in the Netherlands last week. I made this portrait for her as a present and as an encouragement and went to visit her yesterday, by train, to bring it to her in person. We spent a warm afternoon together (even though the weather was cold). For those who can read Dutch, there is a nice article in last Monday’s national newspaper NRC.
