Leidsegracht at the Herengracht (Amsterdam)
Etching and aquatint printed in colors, circa 1937, Vervoorn 39 (variant), edition unknown. 15 1/4 x 19 7/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression with fresh colors. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There's just a faint suggestion of toning within an early mat opening.) This large work is one of several panoramic views of Amsterdam which Everbag created. He's arguably the finest Dutch etcher who worked with printed color during the first half of the 20th century. His art is decorative yet highly refined, with a keen sense of color and composition. This print is a state variant not described by Vervoorn, with the boat in the foreground now facing left.

White Chrysanthemum in a Bluegreen Vase (Witte Chrysanten in Blauwgroene vaasje...)

This is a fine, rich impression with full margins. The condition is fine. This large work exemplifies Everbag's great skills as a color intaglio printmaker. He was producing these plates at a time when color prints were the exception in Holland and these color etchings were certainly among the best work done at the time. His earliest works were mezzotints after old masters. His mature work consisted primarily of views of Amsterdam, flower studies, birds and other animals. His last important exhibition was at the Museum Kempenland in Eindhoven in 1988. Everbag's prints are consistently good and they are especially sought after by collectors in his native Holland. This impression is dedicated in pencil to the artist, Cees Bolding (1897-1979).
