Influenced by The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Boudewijn De Groot and his lyricist Lennaert Nijgh wanted to create the ultimate hippie album. This resulted in Picknick (1967) on which they heavily experimented with psychedelic lyrics and music.
The album cover is designed by the Dutch artist Marijke Koger who was the ultimate visionary of hippie aesthetics. Amongst others she created album art and costumes for The Beatles and painted Eric Clapton's and George Harrison's guitars. She also painted the mural on the theater that debuted the musical ´Hair´ and the murals for The Beatles´ Apple Boutique.
