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], SS. 7 + 8).


“ I have no need to ask reference about you because I know your name like one of the best on the market. Thank you again for your request and my best regards ”
