Guillaume Corneille (1922-2010) - full names Guillaume Cornelis van Beverloo, better known under his pseudonym Corneille - was a painter, printmaker and poet born in Liège, Belgium, to Dutch parents. The family moved back to the Netherlands in the mid 1930s. He studied art at the Academy of Art in Amsterdam. Corneille was a founder member of the REFLEX movement in 1948 and in 1949 he was also one of the founders of the COBRA movement (CO = Copenhagen, BR = Brussels, A = Amsterdam). Corneille was also co-founder of the Experimentele Groep in Holland. His work was influenced by Miró and Klee. After the dissolution of the COBRA group Corneille settled in Paris and he began collecting African art and artifacts which influenced his own work. In 2003 there was a major exhibition of his prints at the Ramat Gan Museum. Corneille died in Auvers-sur-Oise in France.
