Pieter de Hooch (1629 – 1684) was a Dutch Genre painter who is noted for his interior scenes, strong use of perspective, and accurate lighting. His works are similar to those of his Dutch contemporary, Johannes Vermeer, in both content and style. Although he initially painted soldiers and their surroundings, he turned his attention to painting genre scenes depicting Dutch domestic life. Many of these scenes include home interiors, courtyards, and gardens with women as the main characters. Our set of patterns includes his most well known scenes including At the Linen Closet, Woman with a Child in a Pantry, and Soldiers playing Cards.
