biography of Petrus Johannes 'Pieter' Defesche

Pieter Defesche is one of the Limburg artists living in Amsterdam in the nineteen fifties who felt an affinity with the expressionism of Cobra. Based on this, he evolved a dynamic, colourful and increasingly more abstract painting style in which landscape is a dominating influence. Besides painting, he made monumental murals and designed sets and costumes. Defesche also taught at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht.
