Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem was a renowned Dutch painter. His works are emblematic of Dutch Mannerism. Mannerism is generally referred to as an art historical epoch stretching from 1520 to 1600. The art style has its origins in Italy and quickly spread to other European countries. During these years, artists developed their own individual style. They used all the techniques of painting available to them. Van Haarlem was born into the interesting art era. However, it was only because of a tragic incident that he discovered the world of painting, because in 1572 the citizens of Haarlem were expelled from their homes by Spanish troops. Haarlem was the birthplace of the painter. Corneli's parents also had to flee. Her ten-year-old son stayed behind. The Dutch Renaissance painter Pieter Pietersz took Cornelis with him. He became his teacher. Peter introduced the boy to painting and inspired him for the arts.

Cornelis van Haarlem leaves the house of his foster father Peter Pietersz at the age of 18. In the cities of Rouen and Antwerp, he expands his painting skills before returning to his hometown. He joins the school of Haarlem, which was mainly influenced by Bartholomaeus Spranger . Here Cornelis van Haarlem meets his poet friend Karel van Mander and the talented engraver Hendrick Goltzius . The three men discover Mannerism for themselves.

During these years, Cornelis van Haarlem developed his own art style. He loses himself in his passion for large format nude painting. He draws naked bodies in often quite idiosyncratic poses, which, however, always had a decorative added value. Religious scenes from the Bible inspire him as much as mythological ones. He translates familiar scenes into his portrayal of Mannerism. For example, he painted the scene "Cave allegory of Plato". People love his artwork. His painting is celebrated in exhibitions. Here he meets his future wife, Marietje Deyman, daughter of the Haarlem mayor, know and love. Later, his artwork becomes more naturalistic. The painter dies at the age of 76 in his Dutch hometown Haarlem. The country still celebrates its artworks today. Incidentally, van Haarlem is nicknamed "Dutch Michelangelo" among art connoisseurs. © Meisterdrucke
