Biography

Collector of drawings in Amsterdam. A manuscript inventory of the collection was begun by Röver on 31 December 1731, which he kept up until his death. A posthumous inventory (which omits items sold during Röver's lifetime) was drawn up and the numbers on the versos of the drawings (Lugt 2984) were added at this time. Thus the numbers coincide with the posthumous inventory. Both inventories are kept at the Amsterdam University Library. A photographic copy of the later one is in the library of the Department of Prints and Drawings.
