POTTER Pieter Symonsz (b. ca. 1598, Enkhuizen, d. 1652, Amsterdam) Nationality : Dutch

Dutch family of painters, draughtsmen and etchers. Pieter Symonsz. Potter produced paintings in all the main genres; he was overshadowed by his son, Paulus Potter, with whose works his have often been confused. Potter was the son of Dieuwe Simons and Simon Jacobsz., a glassmaker. He presumably trained with his father as a glass painter in Enkhuizen, where he worked until 1628, when he entered the Leiden glassmakers' guild as a master, becoming its headman in 1629. During the late 1620s, as his interests gradually shifted from glass painting to easel painting, his style became increasingly naturalistic.
