Gradually he became a collector of antique prints and in 2004 he made this his profession becoming a full-time dealer. He studied extensively and also got a degree in paper conservation / restauration. He has since been able to built his business succesfully. Peter has always worked closely together and learned from reknown specialists like Theo and Frans Laurentius and many others. His customers now include major Museums (Rijksmuseum, Metropolitan), Institutions, collegues, collectors and print enthusiasts worldwide.
Pictura Antique Prints deals in authentic graphic art from Peter’s personal collection. This includes engravings, etchings and lithographs, as well as drawings and other graphic art. We focus on the 16th to 19th centuries. However, our collection of modern and contemporary prints and books also grows steadily. We display well described items but it is also our aim to sometimes list new material quickly, with a temporary limited description. Our images are mostly scanned for greatest detail. Never hesitate to ask for further information or inquire about other material you seek.
We are located near the city of Nijmegen in the Netherlands. Our customers are always welcome, although by appointment only.
