This is the entrance to the Anton Pieck Museum in Hattem. Anton Pieck (1895-1987) was a Dutch painter, artist and graphic artist. His works are noted for their nostalgic or fairy tail-like character and are widely popular, appearing regularly on cards and calendars.
Here an example of one of his illustrated books.
The Museum is since 1984 in this old building together with two other dutch painters, father and son Voerman.
The two museums are connected by a beautiful courtyard.
A part of the museum was appointed as a regional museum with some old costumes from this region as these special folded hats.
There was a lot to see in this museum, in the basement were some excavations of ancient objects found in the region, look at the plate from 1692.
