Anton Pieck was very prolific and loved to draw all day.
He made many drawings early in his career, which he later developed into graphic prints, watercolors and oil paintings. In the exhibition you can see how he worked; from sketch to preliminary study to final design. With a magnifying glass you can discover the smallest details in his works. There is also the very last calendar plate he was still working on when he died in his sleep at the age of 92. An interactive museum tour further explains the techniques he used and provides even more information about the man and his works. On several screens, the Anton Pieck Image Bank can be consulted where all kinds of images can be seen with more explanation attached. The frivolous calendar plates, impressive travel drawings, brilliant etchings, intriguing book illustrations and finely crafted oil paintings complete the Anton Pieck experience.
