Dutch painter and vignette-engraver; born at The Hague April 19, 1826. He received instruction from his brother Samuel L. Verveer, and from H. F. C. Ten Kate. In 1845 he went to Brussels, where he engraved the vignette illustrations for Eugène Sue's "Le Juif Errant," and on his return to The Hague he was engaged for some time in drawing illustrations for "De Brillen van Onzen Tijd," which appeared first in "Nederlandsch Magazijn" and later as a separate publication.
Of Verveer's paintings may be mentioned "The First Pipe" and "Winter," both in the museum at Rotterdam, and "The Widow" and "Sufferers from Sea-Sickness," which belong to the Stadtmuseum in The Hague.
Verveer is a knight of the Lion of Nassau, and an officer of the Order of Leopold.
