Pieter de Hooch





 

 
Pieter de Hooch

(bapt Rotterdam, 20 Dec 1629; bur Amsterdam, 24 March 1684).

Dutch painter. He was one of the most accomplished 17th-century Dutch genre painters, excelling in the depiction of highly ordered interiors with domestic themes and merry companies and pioneering the depiction of genre scenes set in a sunlit courtyard. The hallmarks of his art are an unequalled responsiveness to subtle effects of daylight, and views to adjoining spaces, either through a doorway or a window, offering spatial as well as psychological release.
