Jan Evert Morel was born in Amsterdam in 1835. He lived and worked there for most of his life and exhibited his works between 1853 and 1874. He was the son and apprentice of the marine painter C.J. Morel (1798-1861). Although Jan Evert entirely in the tradition of his father also became an artist, as far as we know, he never made any seascapes.
Jan Evert mainly specialized in making small paintings with wooded landscapes, often with small figures wandering in nature.
His works hang in museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
