How did gnomes become so popular?

Popularity of gnomes

Although gnomes date back many centuries, it was largely a Dutch artist by the name of Rien Poortvliet, along with author Wil Huygen, that made these little gnome statues popular. In their 1977 classic titled Gnomes, Poortvliet and Huygen made popular the whole gnome culture and began the journey for many gnome lovers that has transcended into gardens all over the world.
