Boeli van Leeuwen by visual artist Midzy Longuevergne. Portrait of  the Curaçao writer  and poet Willem Cornelis Jacobus ‘Boeli’ van Leeuwen (Curaçao, 1922-2007). His hat became one of the characteristics of his personality. His novels are popular in the Dutch literature but the writer shunned publicity and was rarely seen in public.
