Adrianus Eversen was born in Amsterdam on the 13th January 1818 and died on the 1st December 1897. He was a Dutch painter of figurative and architectural views.
Eversen studied under C.De Kruyff and C. Springer and was a member of “Arti et Amicitiae”. He travelled to Berlin and Dresden exhibiting his works and gaining wide acclaim. Eversen is seen to be one of the leading Dutch painters from what is considered to be the second ‘Golden Age’
There is a pleasant freshness and movement in Eversen’s street scenes, combined with a striking originality of conception and colour. Eversen’s little pictures, mostly town views, were much valued in their time. There is no question that his popularity stems from his images being painted with great accuracy and with a stunning observation of light and shade.
Eversen’s works can be found in most of the European Museums and Art Gallerie
