Cornelis Kuijpers was born on the 20th of February 1864 in Gorichem, Holland.
He lived and worked among others in Amsterdam, The Hague and Rijswijk.
He was taught by his father, J.C.E. Kuijpers and created apart from oil-paintings many drawings and watercolors.
Although there have been many genres he painted, most of his fame he earned by his landscapes.
Typical for his paintings is the rough use of his brush. Always done very effective, never a stroke of the brush too much; he invites the observer into his landscape, wants him/her to be part of it, and make him/her feel the same sensation of nature like he has. This nature for which he felt an overwhelming respect.
Cornelis Kuijpers died on the 29th of August 1932 in Soest.
