Biography

Pieter de Bloot (* around 1601 in Rotterdam; † between 6 and 9 November 1658 in Rotterdam) was a Dutch painter.

Nothing is known about Pieter de Bloot's background and education. Stylistically he is close to Jan van Goyen in his landscape paintings and Adriaen Brouwer, David Teniers the Younger and David Vinckboons in his interiors and peasant scenes. Presumably he was the teacher of the painters Adriaen Lucasz. Fonteyn and François Ryckhals. He was married three times.
