History of Artist House
Each apartment is named after a famous Dutch artist who actually lived in the house between 1956 and 1970. Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990) was a consummate photographer, artist, filmmaker and world traveler, known for capturing the unique lives of eccentric and “down-and-out” types that embody the soul of the big city. Many of his works are displayed in Amsterdam around the same area as Artist House. Anton Heyboer (1924-2005) was an eccentric printmaker and painter known for having led a life of debauchery then later ‘settling down’ with his four brides. He also claimed to be ‘the Robin Hood of art’. His emotionally charged works portray philosophical themes of ‘being’, ‘conscience’, ‘suffering’, and other constructs of the human experience.
