Allart van Everdingen

Alkmaar 1621 – Amsterdam 1675

“ … one of the very best landscapists in his school, as recognized by eighteenth-century Dutch collectors of old master drawings …

First of all, he was one of the most accomplished watercolorists in his school — a landscape equivalent to the master of colorful genre scenes, Adriaen van Ostade. By the mid-eighteenth century he fit right at the top in the esteem of Dutch collectors and connoisseurs, who especially prized his highly finished ‘masterpiece’ drawings ”

(Alice I. Davies, The Drawings of Allart van Everdingen [2007], pp. 7 & 8).

“ I purchased this set (Leonardo’s Anatomical Studies) from you at the beginning of this year (recte already in 2011). The books are one of my prized possessions … and thank you again for being a part of this special section of my library … ”
