Anton Pieck (Dutch artist) 1895 - 1987

Anton Franciscus Pieck was a Dutch painter, artist and graphic artist. His works are noted for their nostalgic or fairy tale-like character and are widely popular, appearing regularly on cards and calendars. Pieck was the son of Henri Christiaan Pieck and Petronella Neijfs, and twin brother of the painter and illustrator Henri Christiaan Pieck. Pieck married Jo van Poelvoorde (died 1983) in 1922 and the two hadthree children, Elsa, Anneke and Max (died 1986). From 1952 to 1974, Pieck was responsible for designing almost everything for fairytale park Efteling in Kaatsheuvel, which has become one of the most important theme parks in Europe. His work for Efteling hasbeen of huge importance for the future of the park, since almost all later designers used many of his graphic characteristics in their designs (such as materials, colours and shapes). In 1984 the Anton Pieck Museum was opened at the Achterstraat in Hattem, Netherlands. The museum is called "Huis voor Anton Pieck" (literally, "The House for Anton Pieck").
