Evert Pieters studied at the Antwerp Academy of Fine Arts and settled in Blaricum in 1897. The picturesque landscape of the Gooi region and its rural community inspired him to paint peasant interiors and outdoor scenes of mothers and children playing. His work differs from that of other Gooi painters, like Albert Neuhuys and Hein Kever, because of a southern, sunny and colourful palette. He had immense success with his work, especially among visiting Americans. Pieters also excelled in painting beach scenes and after 1920 he painted several dreamlike Impressionist portraits and nudes.
