Bevort was educated at Chris Agterberg and G. Nijenhuis in Utrecht. He lived and worked in North Holland, close to the dunes, where he worked with Spartan discipline until he was of considerable age. He also made many trips through Europe and the USA and he was a member of the International Organisation of free art.
Bevort settled in Schoorl, North-Holland ca. 1960 and is therefore known as the painter from Schoorl. He also died in Schoorl on 31 January 1996. He has had exhibitions in Europe and America. He was a teacher of well-known painters such as Gerard Ernens and Peter Brouwer
Bevort is best known for his naturalistic landscapes, beach- and seascapes and hunting scenes that he painted with a palette knife. He was also famous for his exhibitions in Europe and the United States.
What Bévort could do with the palette knife was very special indeed. With precise strokes directly placed on the canvas he was able to create a mysterious but contemporary atmosphere of romance As a spectator one is forced to choose one’s position and to research one’s emotions. He made particularly characteristic paintings, the scenes that he has managed to create on the canvas, almost have compelling attraction.
