Springer, Cornelis

Cornelis Springer was educated by the painter Andries de Wit at his home and learned drawing architecture and the perspective from his older brother the architect Henry Springer. He then studied with Jacobus van der Stok, Hendrik Gerrit ten Cate and Kaspar Karsen. Springer initially painted landscapes, but later changed to city and village views.

On his various trips through Europe, most often to Germany, he painted the views of cities, houses, and the landscapes. Cornelis Springer became a member of the Amsterdam painters collective Felix Meritis and won a gold medal for a painting of the Interior of the Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam in 1847. In 1863 he went to Bremen to make sketches, watercolors and oil paintings of the Bremen's Market Square. Springer painted in the style of Romanticism, and many towns and villages are often fantasies with recognizable designs and have topographical accuracy.

In 1865, Springer was awarded the Leopold Order of Belgium, and in 1878 he was invited along with Jozef Israëls to advise the Dutch Ministry of Public Affairs on the plans for the new Rijksmuseum.

Cornelis Springer painting A View Of The Westerstraat In Enkhuizen In Summer was auctioned in Amsterdam in 2006 for US$1.4 million, the highest amount paid for one of his works. His son Leonard Springer was one of the most important landscape architects in the Dutch garden art of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
