Or sometimes francized crow of haarlem (1562-11 November 1638 in haarlem), is a painter and a Flemish mannerist draftsman. Cornelis was born in 1562 into a well-to-do haarlem family. His parents having fled the city during the Spanish siege (December 1572 - July 1573), the child was entrusted to the painter pieter pietersz v.
After a trip to France where he could not continue beyond rouen because of an epidemic of plague (1579) and a stay of Antwerp for a year to complete his training under the direction of master gillis congnet, he returned to haarlem where he settled definitively around 1580-81. It was in 1583 that he received his first major commission, the group portrait of the members of a bourgeois militia: the banquet of the Civic Guard of Haarlem.The same year, cornelis met hendrik goltzius and carel van mander with whom he founded the haarlem academy. In 1588, the diffusion of five of his works through engravings of goltzus brought him some celebrity.
Cornelis was later named painter of the city of Haarlem and, in 1630, he participated in the reorganization of the local guild of saint-luc by reforming its medieval statutes in the spirit of the rebirth. He was also the regent of the Hospice of the old men of Haarlem between 1613 and 1619. His works often signed with the monogram ch reflect the work of the academy haarlem by a naturalistic approach, indebted to the practice of drawing from nature as of the study of ancient sculptures and which quickly supplanted the mannerist influence of spranger. He realized not only biblical or mythological subjects, but also portraits and still lifes. The artist has a rather particular sense of humor: as Jacques Foucart noted, her nudes often have the soles of her feet dirty and Venus has black nails!From the Flemish painter cornelis cornelisz van haarlem, painted in 1588, preserved in the louvre museum, relating to a well-known episode of the life of Jesus Christ, recounted in each of the Gospels. "And when all the people had received baptism, and Jesus, who was baptized, was praying, the heaven was opened, and the holy spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove, and from heaven there had a voice: "You are my beloved son: in you I have my compliments." Amazing composition where the secondary characters are in the foreground and the central scene relegated to the background. In the background, Christ is crouched in the day to receive the Baptism of John the Baptist. The vertical foliage of Christ allowing a stream of light to flow through symbolizes the opening of the heavens mentioned in the story of the Gospels. There is also the dove that represents the holy spirit. The scene is highlighted by its central position in front of a gap of light and by the pointed finger of the child in the background.
