Evert Moll (1878-1955) was born in Voorbug. He lived and worked there until 1930 but also in London (1899-1905), Paris, Rotterdam and The Hague where he died. He was an autodidact but in contact with Willem Maris (1844-1910) and a member of the Pulchri Studio. Besides being a painter, he worked also as an art dealer. His works are preserved in the Zuiderzee Museum and the Museum Boijmans-van Beuningen.

His paintings are a good example of Moll's seascapes skills, a genre in which he specialised along with landscape paintings. Moll was particularly interested with harbours' life that he extensively represented in his oeuvre. The present painting shows a crowded harbour with vivid tones that radiate under a bright sunlight.
