Burgwal in Haarlem Burgwal in Haarlem

Cornelis Springer (1817-1891) has been called the “greatest painter among the architects, and the greatest architect among the painters”. Cornelis Springer mainly painted town and village scenes in which facades and staffage are bathed in warm sunlight. Together with B.C. Koekkoek and A. Schelfhout, he belongs to the leading painters of Dutch Romanticism. In an era where cities were undergoing many changes, Springer depicted his romanticized vision of the streets, houses and the Dutch people. Springer traveled throughout the Netherlands to document the various cities including Haarlem.

Springer was trained by Jacobus van der Stok (1795-1864), Hendrik Gerrit ten Cate (1803-1856) and Kaspar Karsen (1810-1896) and received lessons in architectural drawing and perspective from his brother Hendrik Springer (1805-1867).
