Anton Pieck

I fell in love with Anton Pieck's work when I was 6 years old, and I still am very much in love with it today. Anton Pieck is a Dutch painter, artist and graphic designer, born in the Netherlands in 1895 and died in 1987. His rich imagination was very fairy tale like, and his playful line reminiscent of Albrecht Durer. He was incredibly prolific. In addition to the hundreds of fairytale inspired paintings, woodcuts, and etchings, he designed the first and most important theme park in Europe, The Efteling. I don't come across his work very often here in the states and wanted to share some of his paintings with you.

So beautiful.

    A resource center in Long Island has 24 prints of this artist, 3"x5",for $9. I was looking for a craft and didn't know the artist and found your site and thought you might be interested in the prints.
