Cornelis Vreedenburgh

(1880 - 1946)

Cornelis Vreedenburgh was born in 1880 in Woerden. During his life he stayed loyal to the impressionistic style of painting of the Haagse School. He developed his own style which is somewhat similar to Luminisme, with the use of light, delicate touches of paint.

Vreedenburgh's painted mainly landscapes, water and city scenes. He produced much of his work in Zuid Holland with its many lakes. He lived between 1906 until 1912  in Reeuwijk, Warmond and Noorden. In 1917 he settled with his wife, the painter Marie Schotel (1884-1953), in Laren. At that time, Vreedenburgh began painting his most important subject: Amsterdam city scenes. Later, he also would focus on harbour views and building activities in the city.
