Allart van Everdingen

1621 - 1675
Allart Pietersz. van Everdingen was the brother of Cesar van Everdingen. He was born in Alkmaar, and is recorded as having been taught by Roelandt Savery (presumably in Utrecht), and by Pieter de Molijn in Haarlem. In the 1640s he visited Scandinavia; in 1645-51 he was in Haarlem; from 1652 he was in Amsterdam, where he died. He was also active as an art dealer.

Allart van Everdingen introduced a new type of landscape into Dutch painting: rocky mountain scenes with torrents or waterfalls.
