Artists Biography

Pieter Geradus Vertin

Dutch 1819 - 1893
Pieter Gerardus Vertin was a painter of street scenes in a similar style to that of Adrianus Eversen. He was born at La Haye on the 21st March 1819 but spent most of his life in Amsterdam.

Vertin was a pupil of Jan Van Hove and made his debut in 1841 at La Haye. He followed in the tradition of Dutch street scene painters of the 19th century.

There is a pleasant freshness and movement in these little pieces, combined with a striking originality of conception and colour. Vertin's use of colours are worked up into a tonality out of which the light draws the forms and in doing so reproduces a naturalistic impression.

At one stage he even took to copying old masters by Bergham and Cuyp which were sold as originals.
