Holstein Pieter

Pieter Holstein is a Dutch artist who was born in 1934 in Enschede. He is a painter, graphic artist, sculptor and photographer. He was educated at the Cooper Union School of Art in New York from 1954 to 1957. After graduating, he worked at a graphic studio in Paris. Later Holstein lived and worked alternately in Amsterdam, Finsterwolde (Groningen), New York and France. Pieter Holstein is known for his colored etchings. Holstein creates figurative images of interiors, landscapes, symbols and characters. His etchings sometimes have an absurdist tone and contain ironic commentary on art and perception. Since 1978 Holstein has also made paintings, mostly of dreamlike landscapes. In recent years, Holstein has been evaluating more towards the aboriginal style with faces and masks. He taught at the Academy of Art and Design in Den Bosch and at the Academy of Art and Industry in Enschede. Until 1985 he was senior lecturer in free graphics at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten. (Kunstveiling.be, Catawiki)
