Anton Pieck

Pieck is largely unknown outside of the Netherlands, but his illustrations — created at the end of the 19th century — remain extremely popular there today. I admire the intricate detail and (to use a term I've picked up from Michelle) his subdued color palette, both of which are distinctive and instantly recognizable. There's actually an Anton Pieck Club in Holland, and you'll find its website — in English, for some reason! — here.
