Anton Heyboer (Sabang, 9 February 1924 – Den Ilp, 9 April 2005) was a Dutch painter and etcher. He lived with four women in a commune in Den Ilp (Landsmeer, the Netherlands). The "fifth" woman was his art saleswoman at the other side of the road. Heyboer was born in Sabang, on the Indonesian island of Pulau Weh (North of Sumatra), the son of a mechanical engineer. Five months after his birth, the family moved to Haarlem, in 1925 to Delft, in 1929 to Voorburg and from 1933 to 1938 the family lived in Curaçao. This was followed by a stay in New York. Heyboer was trained as a mechanical engineer. Even before the outbreak of the second world war, the family returned to Haarlem. In 1943 he was arrested by the Germans under the Arbeitseinsatz and transferred to a ‘Durchgangslager’ for foreign forced labourers in Prenzlauer Berg (Berlin). He managed to escape and fled, traumatised, to the Netherlands where he worked on the lands in Vinkeveen.
