Pieter Bout

1658–1719, Brussels

During his lifetime Pieter Bout, a painter and draughtsman from Brussels, came to be known primarily for his staffage-like landscape paintings of village market, beach, port and town scenes. He was admitted to the Guild of St. Luke in Brussels in 1671 and subsequently spent several years working in Paris. He occasionally painted the figure staffage for works by other artists including Adriaen Frans Boudewyns and Jacques d’Arthois. In contrast to his painted oeuvre Pieter Bout’s corpus of prints is very modest, consisting of just five landscape etchings.
