Peter Alma

Dutch artist, b. Medan, Indonesia, 1868, d. 1969. Graduate of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague in 1904. On the recommendation of Franz Seiwert he was employed by the Gesellschafts-und Wirtschaftsmuseum working with Gerd Arntz and Augustin Tschinkel on the development of Isotypes. He travelled to Moscow with Arntz and Otto Neurath to work at IZOSTAT to help them draw up pictorial images for statistics of the Five Year Plans. Many of his pictographs can be seen in Wim Jansen's book, Beeldstatistiek Peter Alma (De Buitenkant, 2015).
