Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Dorset, England John Everett, whose full name was Herbert Barnard John Everett, became a prolific painter of dramatic seascapes, sailing ships and landscapes and also of floral still life. Of his work, it was written that he "explored the visual effects of dazzle painting."

In 1895, he and Julius Olsson founded a school for teaching seascape painting.

His own education was at the Slade School of Fine Art* and the Academie Julian* in Paris.

In the spring of 1918, he was commissioned by the British Ministry of Information to paint scenes of wartime London docks and the Thames, and these works were exhibited in the United States.  His work, because of his ability to create the "dazzle" effect, was used as camouflage" on ships during World War I.  His camouflage portrayed in his colored drawing of A Convoy  1918, "reveals the rhythmic relationship between the hull funnel, waves and the sea."

Everett departed for his first sea voyage in 1898. Thereafter, he made a specialty of shipboard scenes and always signed his work 'John Everett' since he disliked the name Herbert. He undertook a series of world voyages, which inspired his unusual seascapes of the 1920s and 1930s, and he produced great quantities of drawings, oil paintings and engravings. During his lifetime he sold some of his landscape paintings but none of his marine work. When he died he left all his maritime pictures - over 2000 works - to the National Maritime Museum, London.
