Cees Muller (Dutch, born 1941)
Cornelius Bastiaan (Cees) Muller studied at the ‘Academy of Fine Arts’ in Rotterdam. During his career Muller became self-skilled in several techniques; in Paris he experimented with colours and combinations of styles, which eventually would result in the mature style we find in Muller’s paintings nowadays, perhaps best to be described as Realistic Impressionism. Muller is highly praised by art critics for his particular artistic view and this unique style. Apart from his attractive views of the city of Paris, he remained attached to the Dutch landscapes and seascapes and, most of all, to the city scenes within Amsterdam. Muller gained respect with a large range of exhibitions. Nowadays he paints exclusively for ‘De Schildercamer’, the gallery located in the famous Spiegel art quarter in Amsterdam. His passion and our passion is to show Amsterdam as it is nowadays, in all its splendor and glory, with its characteristic beauty and enchanting charm. When strolling through the streets of this city we recognize immediately the places where Muller has once sat down with his easel.
