Evert Moll became best known for his portraits of the port of Rotterdam and the shipping on the Nieuwe Maas which he painted in the 1920s and 30s of the last century. Starting around 1900 as follower of the Hague School, Evert Moll soon changed his field of work to the quays and bridges of the Maasstad. The dynamics of the port business also formed a source of inspiration for the painter. In addition, he excelled in many other genres. He also painted cityscapes, landscapes and colourful, daring flower still lifes. Evert Moll was self-taught, but received advice from Willem Maris and Willem Roelofs.
