Cornelis Springer (Amsterdam, 25 May 1817 - Hilversum, 20 February 1891) was a Dutch painter in oil paint and watercolour.
He was born as the fourth son of Timmerman and contractor Willem Springer (1778-1857). Springer was educated by the the house and vehicle painter Andries de Wit (1768-1842). He received lessons in architectural drawing and perspective from his eldest brother Hendrik Springer (1805-1867), who was an architect.
Cornelis Springer was a student of, among others, Jacobus van der Stok (1795-1864), Hendrik Gerrit ten Cate (1803-1856) and Kaspar Karsen (1810-1896). For the most part of his life Springer lived in Amsterdam, but travelled around the country to make sketches for his cityscapes, in which city halls often formed an important part. He also worked abroad, including Germany.
He has left about 650 works.
Springer initially painted landscapes, but later city and village views. Among other things he painted a lot in Amsterdam, Haarlem, Zwolle, Kampen, Enkhuizen, Monnickendam and Harderwijk, for which he made sketches on the spot. His paintings are generally truthful and deviate only slightly from details of reality.
Works by Cornelis Springer can be seen in, among others: the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, the Amsterdam Historisch Museum, the Dordrechts Museum, the Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen, the Valkhof Museum in Nijmegen, the Hist Museum Den Briel in Brielle, the Rijksmuseum Twenthe in Enschede, the Teylers Museum in Haarlem and in the stadsmuseum in Woerden.
