Piet Cottaar Senior Petrus Johannes Maria Cottaar was born in 1878 and lived with his family in Overschie since 1930. He had one son and two daughters. He mainly painted flowers and still lives. Nowadays he is also seen as one of the best flower painters in the Netherlands. He was having a hard time as the son of a baker. If he could, he'd sneak up to the attic and paint. He has developed all the techniques himself, he has never had any training. After having worked in the bakery for years, he married and then (reluctantly) had to work in the laundry of his father-in-law. His paintings were sold by his wife for little money and sometimes even exchanged for a bag of potatoes, for example. He also painted old-Dutch landscapes and through mediation of acquaintances on the passenger ship \ "New Amsterdam \" many of these works ended up in America.
In 1950 he suddenly died from blood poisoning.
