The Roof Painter, Anton Pieck

20th century Dutch illustrator, printmaker and gallery artist Anton Pieck was noted for his charming winter scenes. Here, he shows an artist, perhaps meant to be a representation of Pieck himself, finding a view of the town that requires him to climb to a roof peak. A boy brings him hot soup while a cat casually takes in the activity.

This was one of a series of graphics sometimes referred to as his Christmas Cards, that were actually intended as New Year’s cards.
