Adrianus Eversen was a Dutch painter who portrayed the typical 19th-century Dutch atmosphere in his work. He was a member of Arti et Amicitiae, a society for his time's elite artists. Eversen was a contemporary of Cornelis Springer. Both painters were students of Hendrik Gerrit ten Cate at the same time and usually painted contemporary regional (Oud-Hollandse) cityscapes. In his choice of subjects, Eversen allowed himself more freedom. He painted primarily imaginary cityscapes, so-called capriccios, consisting of existing and invented fragments. And our painting called "A Dutch Canal Town, With Figures and Boats" is a typical painting with a lot of details taken from his imagination. It's interesting how he captured the illumination effect of sunlight, the carefully painted everyday life of the people and a canal with boats. And if we look closely enough in the background, we can see a chimney from which you can see a small streak of smoke, a genius detail. This painting is by far one of the best Adrianus Eversen to hit the market in many years; please see comparable sales from the auction market.
