Moreover, he also painted genre scenes in pubs or on market days. There is much speculation about his artistic training, but we know that Culverhouse lived and worked in Rotterdam until c. 1845. In the following year, he moved to the United States, as various exhibitions at the American Academy of the Fine Arts (1849) or at the Boston Athenaeum (1851) prove. In the late 1850s, Culverhouse was temporarily active in Europe again; he repeatedly exhibited, for instance, at the Paris Salon. In the mid-1860s, he returned to America and established himself in Syracuse, New York. Although Culverhouse mainly worked for the American market, his subjects always remained the tradition of Dutch paintingATTENTION: The auction is in USD (US Dollars).
