Who is Anton Pieck

Dutch painter, draughtsman and graphicus.

He obtained great popularity by his travelling-sketches, his drawings of town-views, cosy streets and interior scenes.

These works show his great ability of observation, a vivid imagination and sympathetic sense of humour.

For more than a century he illustrated famous stories, such as "Grimm's Fairy-Tales" and "Stories of 1001 nights".

For children and adults who have kept the child in their hearts, Anton Pieck designed the fairypark "De Efteling".
