Corneille (Cornelis Guillaume van Beverloo), a Belgian-born Dutch artist, was a cofounder of the influential art collective COBRA (CoBrA group 1948-1951).
Corneille studied (1940 -1943) at the Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam but was largely self-taught as a painter. In the nineteen fifties he shared a studio with Appel on the Rue Santeuil in Paris, where he developed a style characterised by an expressive interplay of lines and a well-thought out composition.
Corneille became one of the most popular Dutch painters of his time, and his work still enjoys an international reputation.
