Schindler designed this house for the artist and art writer, Hilaire Hiler, who had just moved to Los Angeles from San Francisco. (Hilaire was a color theorist and author who wrote, "The Painter's Pocket-book of Methods and Materials." [New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1938]) Hiler lived here for about three years, before he moved to Albuquerque, NM, in 03/1944. After he moved, the house was deeded to the actor, Errol Flynn, and painter, John Decker, who were going to open the building as an art museum in 04/1944.
