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

Born to Dutch parents on May 15, 1884, he was raised in Amsterdam, where his father died when he was only ten years old. Unable to care for her ten children on her own, his mother had to place some of her children elsewhere.  Nico was brought  to a relief  house, where he  received  instructions as a fine art restorer.

In 1907 he found work at Bellevue in Amsterdam and made friends with Simon Maris, who gave him valuable hints and instructions. He then got a job with the Urban Museum in Haarlem, married in 1911, and moved to Cologne, Germany, where he worked at the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, among others. Returning to Amsterdam in 1913, Cevat became a member of the St. Lucas artist association as well as  a member of Arti et Amicitiae.  Between 1913 and 1922, Cevat regularly took part in exhibitions by these organizations.

Cevat went to the United States in 1922, returning in 1923.

Around 1950, he stopped working, and died on December 7, 1955.
