Cornelis Beelt (born 1602/1612 – died 1664/1702), was a Dutch Golden Age landscape painter.

Biography[edit]

According to the RKD though older sources claim he was born in Rotterdam in 1640, this is impossible because he was engaged to be married in Haarlem 30 March 1630.[1] This places the year of his birth between 1602 and 1612. It is unknown in what year he became a member of the Haarlem Guild of St. Luke, but he is listed in 1661 as one of the 51 better-known painters of the total of 72 painters who paid their 7 stuivers that year.[2] He is known for signed landscapes between 1651 and 1664.[1] He is listed in Vincent van der Vinne's list of guild members that he knew and his name was marked with a "d" for dead before 1702 as "cor: beelt".[2] He was a follower of Willem Gillisz Kool.[1] His last dated work was from 1664, so he died sometime between 1664 and 1702.[1]
