Pieter Claesz


Pieter Claesz

(b Burgsteinfurt, Westphalia, c. 1597; d Haarlem, 1660).

Dutch painter of German birth. He apparently spent his entire career in Haarlem, where he specialized in still-life paintings. Well over 100 works survive, dating from 1621 to 1660. Most of his pictures are dated and monogrammed PC. Since those initials were shared by the Antwerp still-life painter CLARA PEETERS, several attributions are disputed.
