The Dooyewaard Foundation has recently acquired a plot of land and buildings in Blaricum in order to preserve a group of remarkably authentic studios from the beginning of the 20th century. One of the studios from about 1905 was used by Piet Mondrian in the summer of 1917, a crucial period in his artistic development. Another wooden building turned out to have been the studio of painter Ferdinand Hart Nibbrig and Anna Sluijter thereafter. The Foundation aims to restore all these buildings and will replace three wooden studios to a different location on the premises using the traditional method of lifting them up. They will be placed back onto newly created cellars in order to combine modern living standards with early 20th century exteriors. Dooyewaard Foundation fulfills its aim of promoting Blaricum as a village of artists. The Foundation aims to set up a thriving art colony which ideally would be part of an international chain of artists’ colonies where artistic spirits can flow and prosper. Potential sponsors and supporters are encouraged to contact the chairman of the Dooyewaard board.
