Anton Franciscus Pieck (Den Helder, Netherlands, 19 April 1895 – Overveen, Netherlands, 24 November 1987), a Dutch painter, artist and graphic artist. His works are noted for their nostalgic or fairy tale-like character and are widely popular, appearing regularly on cards and calendars.
Personal
Pieck was the son of Henri Christiaan Pieck and Petronella Neijfs, and the twin brother of the painter and illustrator Henri Christiaan Pieck.

Pieck married Jo van Poelvoorde in 1922 and the two had three children, Elsa, Anneke and Max.

Jo van Poelvoorde died in 1983.

Max died in 1986.

Teaching

1912-1920 Drawing teacher at the Bik en Vaandrager institute in The Hague, Netherlands.

1920-1960 Drawing teacher at the Kennemer Lyceum in Overveen, Netherlands.

Efteling

From 1952 to 1974, Pieck was responsible for designing almost anything for fairytale park Efteling in Kaatsheuvel, which has become one of the most important theme parks in Europe. His work for Efteling has been of a huge importance for the future of the park, since almost all later designers used many of his graphic characteristics in their designs (such as materials, colors and shapes).

Anton Pieck Museum

In 1984 the Anton Pieck Museum was opened at the Achterstraat in Hattem, Netherlands. The museum is called "Huis voor Anton Pieck" (literally, "The House for Anton Pieck").

Trivia

In the comic Spike and Suzy (Suske en Wiske) the characters visit De Efteling three times, in De Efteling-elfjes, in Fata Morgana and in De belhamel-bende. In this last comic, Pieck has a cameo role when Ambrose (Lambik) is called by someone who knows where Aunt Sidonia (Tante Sidonia) is.

Drs. P. (Heinz Hermann Polzer) once wrote a song, "Winterdorp," as a hommage to Pieck's cosy drawing style.

In a 2004 poll regarding De Grootste Nederlander (The Greatest Dutchman), the general public placed Pieck in 81st place.

Pieck illustrated the Dutch version of the book The Wonderful Adventures of Nils.

In Kaatsheuvel a LOM school has been named after Anton Pieck.

In 1972 he designed the classic car museum "Autotron" in Drunen. After the museum collection relocated to Rosmalen, the building has been used as a cultural centre housing a broad range of activities, from a theatre to restaurants and from music school to home base for the elderly. The building's name was changed to "De Voorste Venne"
