About Artist: Anton Pieck was born in 1895 in the Dutch city of Den Helder. Both he and his twin brother Henri had a remarkable talent for drawing. Anton won his first prize for art at the age of 11 with a still life in watercolour at a craft exhibition, for which he received five tubes of paint and a fixative atomiser. Both brothers enrol in art college where they study drawing and painting, and learn about perspective, anatomy and art history. They graduate at the age of 17. While Henri enrols in a course at the Amsterdam Academy for Fine Arts Anton goes on to teach drawing, a tragic waste of his extraordinary talent. He educates himself further by following evening classes and in 1920 receives a permanent teaching post at Kennemer Secondary School in Overveen, where he is to be employed until his retirement.
