VER BRYCK, Cornelius, artist, born in Yaugh Paugh, New Jersey, 1 January, 1813; died in Brooklyn, New York, 31 May, 1844. He studied in 1835 under Samuel F. B. Morse, and in 1837 went to Mobile. In 1839 he visited London, England, whence he soon returned. He was elected an associate of the National academy in 1838, and an academician in 1841. He exhibited at the academy during 1837-'42 various landscapes, figure-pieces, and portraits, and in 1839 "Charles I. in the Studio of Vandyck." His health gave way soon after his art studies began, and in 1843 he went again to Europe, with the hope that a voyage might restore him, but soon returned, and his early death terminated a promising career. The New York historical society owns his "Tile Old Dutch Bible." Among his portraits is, one of William Cullen Bryant (1842).
