Born in Mechelen where he studied at the Akademie voor Schone Kunsten, Vervloet concentrated on architectural painting and church interiors early in his career.  In 1822, he was awarded a scholarship to study in Italy where he developed a greater interest in landscape painting and where he eventually spent much of his career.  After two years in Rome, Vervloet travelled to Naples in 1824. There he was greatly influenced by the group of painters of the Posillippo School whose members, in their reaction against the more academic approach of late 18th century landscape painting, favored a more spontaneous approach, with an emphasis on plein-air painting.  He eventually settled permanently in Venice in 1854.

Vervloet also made a number of excursions to Turkey where he produced both views and recorded scenes of everyday life.  This luminous painting depicts fishermen and animals along the shore on the outskirts of Istanbul while, in the distance at right, Topkapi Palace and the dome and minarets of Hagia Sophia can be seen.
