Bia Maas was the first Artist in Residence .
In 2020 the Dooyewaard Foundation took over ownership and management of the original Blaricum studio of painting, drawing and etching artist Bob ten Hoope (1920-2014). Ten Hoope divided his time between France and the Netherlands but when in his home country this was his studio. He was a prolific painter of mainly landscapes, figures and nudes. Many local residents have been immortalized in his pub sketches and the woollen rug which must have provided some comfort to his nude models is still on the studio floor… At some point in the future the Friends of Bob ten Hoope Foundation plans to set up a special award.
