in 1895 ANTON PIECK was born in a small village in the netherlands. most of his life he was a professor, teaching children how to draw. in 1987 he died at the age of 92. his paintings are very well known in holland, he is, after all, one of the founders and designers of the fairy theme park DE EFTELING, a dutch kind of disneyland. when I worked on the comic strip series ALFRED J.KWAK I was introduced to pieck’s work through one of our dutch partners. first I thought I was looking at GUSTAF TENGGREN art. but after looking closer I found out that he has his very personal style, portraying the very typical, charming dutch way of life. here is a very small selection of his artwork.
