STUDIO BOB TEN HOOPE
A new project will start in 2024 in Bob ten Hoope’s former studio. PLAN B is a series of work periods (of 3 months) for local and regional artists.
Laren artist Elize van der Werff will start in January 2024.
Previous Artists in Residence:
Tamar Frank (Hilversum).
Bia Maas ( Blaricum).
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… This studio has been renovated during 2023 by the Dooyewaard Foundation.
