Mathilde. The Netherlands’ best-known muse, Zeeland girl, The Phenomenon, living work of art, fashion queen of the seventies, muse and (ex) wife of Carel Willink, ambassador of Fong-Leng, myth and mystery. Thanks to the podcast ‘Mathilde’s Mysterie’ plenty of attention again.
Who was Mathilde really? In this book, the focus shifts from her much-discussed mysterious death and the last two intense years after her divorce with Willink to her intriguing life. In addition to Mathilde’s biography, the book contains Lisette de Zoete’s quest for the life of Mathilde and full-quote interviews with Fong-Leng, Marte Röling, Joop van Loon, Imca Marina, Lotti and Maria Heyboer, Ger Lammens, Adrian Stahlecker and Mathildes sisters.
Previously unpublished visual material, photography, letters and poetry by Mathilde herself enrich this special publication about a striking personality.
