  • About the artwork

    Nude is an original artwork realized by Corneille (Guillaume van Beverloo) in 1989. Hand signed and dated in pencil on the lower right margin. Edition of 30 prints. Very good condition.

    It represents a female nude on an abstract composition. The choice of colors is expressionist, the figure is monumental, on the right side there is a blue bird and in the background, there are some multicoloured shapes. The background is realized with a beautiful turquoise color that contrasts with the bright red figure in the center. The artwork is on the cover of the book "Zinnenstrelende huiveringen: erotische prenten en poezie" (Sensational Shivers: Erotic prints and poems).

    Guillaume Cornelis van Beverloo (1922 – 2010), was better known with his pseudonym Corneille, a Dutch artist. He studied art at the Academy of Art in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. He was one of the founders of the Reflex movement in 1948 and in 1949. He was also one of the founders of the Cobra movement, which has a great influence on Scandinavian art. The poetic of Corneille was strongly influenced by Miró and Klee. After the group dissolved in 1951, he moved to Paris and began collecting African art. These artifacts became evident in his works, which began to take on a more imaginative style, like landscapes seen from a bird's eye view, exotic birds and stylised forms. His work is also in the collection of the Centre Georges Pompidou.

Born in: 1922 Netherlands

Famous artist


Corneille (Guillaume Cornelis van Beverloo) (1922-2010) is the artist who truly knew how to celebrate womanhood, joy and all that is beautiful in life.

Guillaume Cornelis van Beverloo was born in 1922 in Liège, Belgium, to Dutch parents. After leaving school, he studied drawing at the Academy of Arts in Amsterdam from 1940 to 1943. As a painter, however, he was an autodidact. Together with Karel Appel, Asger Jorn, Dotremont and Constant, he founded the COBRA group in Paris 1948.

The works of Paul Klee and Joan Miró exerted a strong influence on Corneille and, like them, he too was inspired by African culture, with which he became well acquainted during several journeys to Africa. Initially his art was non-figurative, but he gradually turned to painting fantasy landscapes in warm tones, frequently characterised by symbiotic representations of female figures and birds. The woman represents beauty and voluptuousness, while the bird symbolises freedom and strength.

Corneille passed away in September 2010. He is represented in several museums in Europe, among others at Centre Georges Pompidou, au Musée d’Art moderna à Paris, à The COBRA Museum, Amstelveen, et à Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
