The painter Evert Moll lived and worked between 1895 and 1930
in Voorburg, London, Paris, The Hague and Rotterdam.
He then settled in The Hague.
There he received lessons from Willem Maris and further formed himself.
He worked a lot on behalf of art dealers in the U.S.A. and Canada.
Evert Moll is one of the most famous Dutch painters of impressionist river views and of the port of Rotterdam. He formed himself as a painter, although he did receive advice from Willem Maris. In his final years, he also painted daring, colourful still lives.
Moll often visited the port of Rotterdam.
The ins and outs of a harbour, the crowds and
the slowness of the colossal sea vessels fascinated him immensely.
He loved the smell of the water, the fuel oil and the wind.
The port views of Moll can be read as a history book.
In this way he records maritime development at the beginning of the 20th century.
How the ports expand, the ships get bigger, and the sailing ships
clear the field for motor vessels.
Works can be found in, among others, the Boymans van Beuningen Museum
