Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Pieter Quast was born in Amsterdam, Holland in 1606.  He married Annette Shinters (or Anna Splinters) in 1632.  He joined the painters' guild in The Hague in 1634, returned to Amsterdam in 1644 and died there in 1647.  He was a book illustrator and printmaker as well as a painter and was noted for his satire and his almost caricature-like portrayal of human figures.  His humor, his decidedly personal touch, and an implied moral in spite of its subject matter raises Quast's wo (showing 500 of 1199 characters).
