Pieter Pietersz - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Pieter Pietersz (1540–1603) was a Dutch Renaissance painter. He was a member of an artistic family. He was the eldest son of the Amsterdam painter Pieter Aertsen (1508-1575) alias Lange Pier, and Kathelijne Beuckelaer, aunt of the painter Joachim de Beuckelaer (c. 1533-1575), Aertsen’s talented pupil. 

Aertsen migrated to Antwerp in around 1525, where Pieter, nicknamed Jonge Lange Pier (Young Tall Pieter) after his father, was born and raised. In 1557, when Pieter was about 17, the Aertsen family returned to Amsterdam, where Pieter initially worked in his father’s studio. In 1569 he moved to Haarlem, where he stayed for 16 years and received important commissions during this period. In addition, he became a successful portraitist.
