ABSTRACT
The article focuses on artist L.E.J. Brouwer who settled in the Dutch village of Blaricum. The village had landscapes for artists and for experiments in social communes. The property on which Brouwer had his hut had the remnants of the old commune of the village. By the 1920s Brouwer added some small buildings in the place. In 1925-26, the hut in which Brouwer lived and the neighboring buildings were the center of attraction for many a tourists visiting that part of the world. The village remained home to a variety of artists for several decades since then. INSETS: Save Brouwer (t).;Red Brouwer (t)..
