Delft is one of Holland’s most picturesque and untouched towns. It is known for its attractive open marketplace and its network of picturesque canals, lined by traditional seventeenth and eighteenth century façades. The Nieuwe Kerk, a Gothic church and the Renaissance Stadhuis (town hall) face each other across the marketplace. It is perhaps best known for Delft-ware pottery, charming peasant-style designs in blue on white. The town was founded in 1075 by Duke Godfrey III of Lower Lotharingia. It passed into the hands of the Dutch Count William II who gave the town its first charter in 1246. The town was devastated several times, first by fire in 1536, and then by powder explosion in 1654.  

 

Adrianus Eversen painted townscapes and street scenes which usually included figures. He was interested in evoking the atmosphere of a place through his summary style and carefully chosen colours, rather than in topographical exactitude. He also painted market scenes, canal scenes and imaginary town views. Born in Amsterdam in 1818, Eversen first studied under Cornelius de Kruyf (1774-1828) and then continued his training under Cornelis Springer (1817-1891) by whom he was influenced. Adrianus Eversen spent most of his life in Amsterdam where he exhibited regularly between 1840-1885; he also exhibited at the Hague in 1859 and in 1861 and at Leuwarden in 1863. He spent his last years in Delft where he died in 1879. The work of Adrianus Eversen is represented in several museums including the Stedelijk Museum, Alkmaar, the Amsterdams Historisch Museum, the Rijksmuseum, Enkhuizen and the Rijksmusem Twenthe, Enschede, the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
