“P. Barbiers”


Pieter Barbiers III, was born in Amsterdam in 1749, into an artistic family. He was trained by his father (1717-1780) of the same name, and like his brother, Bartolomeus, he began in the atelier of his father. He became one of the most important landscape artists of his time, painting mainly on canvas until 1800. Later he also produced also drawings, gouchaes and etchings. In 1786 he became a member of the Amsterdam painters Guild, which he remained until 1796. By 1822 he was a member of the Amsterdam Academy, and he was also a member of the painter’s association “Arti et Amicitiae”. Pieter Barbiers III also had several apprentices which included Jan Hulswit, Johannes Jelgerhuis, Henricus Franciscus Wiertz and his son Bartholomeus Barbiers. He died in his native city in 1842.
