Everdingen, Allart van

Allart van Everdingen (äl´ärt vän ā´fərdĬngən), 1621–75, Dutch painter and etcher. Although he worked primarily in Haarlem and Amsterdam, the scenery of Sweden and Norway forms the subject of some of his finest pictures. In color, atmosphere, and composition his paintings have been compared to those of Ruisdael. Everdingen executed over 150 etchings, treated in a broad and vigorous manner. Outstanding among them were his etchings for Reynard the Fox. His brother Caesar Everdingen, 1617–87, was a portrait and historical painter in the Italian academic style.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
