Van Vliet, Hendrick Cornelisz

Hendrick Cornelisz van Vliet studied under his uncle Willem van der Vliet, he was good at drawing perspectives and Van Vliet started with architectural painting, particularly the painting of church interiors, but later took up portrait painting with Michiel Jansz van Mierevelt.

The architectural painting had been pioneered by Pieter Saenredam, who introduced innovative techniques of perspective. By the mid-seventeenth century, architectural painting had gained great popularity, and Hendrick Cornelisz van Vliet introduced his style. Among the churches painted by Hendrick Cornelisz van Vliet are the Pieterskerk (Peter's Church) in Leiden, the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) in Delft, and the Oude Kerk (Old Church) in Delft. Emanuel de Witte and Gerard Houckgeest also painted these Delft church interiors. Painting the tomb of William the Silent at Nieuwe Kerk in Delft were quite popular.

Van Vliet became a member of the Delft Saint Lucas guild in 1632. He wedded in 1643 Cornelia van der Plaat and had one daughter. He died in poverty in 1675 and was buried in the Old Church Oude Kerk in Delft, which he had painted earlier in his life. The paintings of Hendrick Cornelisz van Vliet are exhibited in the major art museums of the world.
