Pieter de Hooch - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Pieter de Hooch was born in Rotterdam in 1629. In 1655, he registered with the artists guild in Delft as an independent painter.  As an artist, De Hooch mainly painted figures in domestic settings. A characteristic element in many of his paintings is a view of a room or yard through an open door or window. As was usual in Dutch genre painting, his interiors often conveyed a moral message. When De Hooch moved to Amsterdam in 1661, his style became more elegant and profuse.  When De Hooch died is unclear; his last dated work is from 1684.
