Over the years, a number of books have been written about the Dutch artist Anton Heyboer. These books are all about his life as a recluse, about his wives, or about his work. They all have one thing in common: they’re about Anton Heyboer.
This book allows
Anton Heyboer to speak for himself.
These stories and utterances reveal the basis and soul of his
work, as his art originated purely from his philosophy and thinking. Anton was,
as he himself said, a ‘nothing’.
The idea for this book was conceived a number of years ago.
Through my work as a bookseller, I had regular telephone contacts with the
Heyboer family. Over the years, it gradually became clear to me that this
so-called ‘weird artist’ was not so weird after all. On the contrary. I finally
decided to approach Lotti and put to her my plan for this book. The Heyboer
partnership firm (Maria, Lotti, Marieke and Joke) was in agreement with the
texts I had chosen and the ‘girls’, as Anton called them, together made a
selection from among Anton’s photos and work. You now have the result before
