Surinamestraat 20 in The Hague is the location of the house where the Dutch writer Louis Couperus wrote his novel Eline Vere. The father of Couperus, John Ricus Couperus (1816-1902) gave orders to build this house; he first sold his estate “Tjicoppo”, which was located near Buitenzorg in the Dutch East Indies and then returned to the Netherlands, where he and his family moved into this house. John Ricus Couperus lived here until his death in 1902 and then the house was put up for sale.
