Pieter Aertsen BiographyDutch Mannerist
born 1508 - died 1575
Also known as: Pieter Aerston, Lange Pier Aertsen, Lange Reyer Aertsen, Peter Aertsen, Pieter Aertsz, Pieter Aertsz., Jonge Pier Aertsen.
Aertsen, Pieter (b. 1508-09, Amsterdam, d. 1575, Amsterdam). Netherlandish painter, active in his native Amsterdam and in Antwerp. A pioneer of still life and genre painting, Pieter Aertsen is best known for scenes that at first glance look like pure examples of these types, but which in fact have a religious scene incorporated in them (Butcher's Stall with the Flight into Egypt, University of Uppsala, 1551).
His sons, Pieter Pietersz and Aert Pieterz, also
became painters. Aertsen also trained his
nephew Joachim Beuckelaer. Pieter Aertsen Biography and Holland oil paintings
During his first years in Antwerp Pieter Aertsen was mainly commissioned to make altarpieces for Dutch churches. Before long Pieter Aertsen also started to paint scenes from peasant life and Pieter Aertsen gained a reputation for Pieter Aertsen paintings of market scenes and "kitchen" tableaux, which contained an abundance of fruit, fish, poultry, cheese, bread and much more.
His compositions packed at the front with
vegetables reflect a mannerist pathos
specific to the 16th century; however if
religious figuration is often relegated in
the background in a subordinated position (a
scheme that will later have much success,
among his younger cousin and pupil
Beuckelaer for instance, who took over this
style of Pieter Aertsen painting and developed it further),
the religious painter should not be ignored,
with such massive formats and powerful
ambitions. Pieter Aertsen was tormented by iconoclasts
and practiced a heroic and dignified style,
close to and competing with Floris.
Earlier the Pieter Aertsen painting was attributed to Joachim Beuckelaer, Aertsen's pupil.
