THE PAINTER PIET SAENREDAM,

The life of Pieter Saenredam
Pieter Saenredam was a painter, printmaker and draughtsman. He specialised in difficult to construct, perspectival church scenes. The tranquillity and geometric clarity he brought to his work make his paintings easily recognisable. Pieter used line perspective for the pillars, arches and floor tiles. Pieter's most frequently painted church is the Grote or St. Bavokerk in Haarlem, where he is also buried.
