Eversen, Adrianus

Adrianus Eversen was trained under the painter Cornelis de Kruyff, who introduced him to painting old Dutch cityscapes. He was also a pupil of the well-known Dutch townscape painter Cornelis Springer, who was only one year older than Eversen. Under his tutelage Eversen developed a brilliant compositional structure, warm color scheme, and exquisitely elaborated details.

Both painters were students of Hendrik Gerrit ten Cate at the same time, and usually painted contemporary regional cityscape. In his choice of subjects, Eversen allowed himself more freedom. He painted mostly imaginary cityscape, consisting of existing and invented fragments, unlike the more faithful representations of Springer.

In his choice of subjects, Adrianus Eversen allowed himself more freedom. He painted mostly imaginary cityscape, consisting of existing and invented fragments, unlike the more faithful representations of Springer. He painted many views of Amsterdam, where he worked and exhibited regularly between 1840 and 1885. However, Eversen took liberties when it came to subject matter, and arranged city views in such a way that an attractive townscape arose instead.

Adrianus Eversen was a highly regarded artist during his lifetime; he became a member of the ‘Arts and Amicitae’ in 1863, an association of artists, and was widely collected in Holland and also Great Britain.

The everyday life of people, Dutch architecture, and the illumination effect of sunlight played a major role in his work. One of Adrianus Eversen descendants was the painter Johannes Hendrik Eversen.
