Moll (Voorburg 1878 - 1955 The Hague) is best known for his more than 1000 representations of the port of Rotterdam, which he painted in the 1920s and 1930s. Bridges, quays and the dynamics of the port around the Nieuwe Maas were a source of inspiration. In this way he unnoticed records the maritime development at the beginning of the 20th century. In addition, he excelled in many other genres. He also painted cityscapes, landscapes and colourful, daring flower still lifes. Evert Moll was self-taught and a follower of the Hague School, but received advice from Willem Maris and Willem Roelofs. He was friends with Albert Roelofs, which is why he also knew Willem Roelofs well. New developments apparently passed him unnoticed as he was more of a very good painter than an artist. As he grew older, the sober use of colour and broad brush strokes gave way to a richer and more varied colour image and a finer brush stroke. Moll mainly painted outdoors. He sat at the water's edge with his folding chair and the paper on his lap. Many of his works are of the same size: 19 by 31 centimetres, exactly the size of his painter's box that he used as a “coaster”. These panels often served as an example for the larger works that were created in his studio. Between 1895 and 1930 he lived and worked in Voorburg, London, Paris, The Hague and Rotterdam. He then settled in The Hague. He often worked for art dealers in the United States and Canada. Work by Evert Moll is included in the National Collection, the Zuiderzee Museum and the Boymans-van Beuningen Museum, among others. He was a member of the Pulchri Studio and, in addition to being a painter, also worked as an art dealer.
