Pieter de Hooch, 1629-1684, was a Dutch Golden Age painter famous for his genre works of quiet domestic scenes with a few figures. Pieter de Hooch art showed astute observation of the mundane details of everyday life while also functioning as well-ordered morality tales. These Pieter de Hooch paintings often exhibited a sophisticated and delicate treatment of light similar to those of Vermeer, who lived in Delft at the same time as de Hooch. 19th-century art historians had assumed that Vermeer had been influenced by de Hooch's oil painting. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
