Corneille Guillaume Beverloo (3 July 1922 – 5 September 2010), better known under his pseudonym Corneille, was a Dutch artist, born in Liège, Belgium. He studied arts in Amsterdam, Netherlands and became one of the founders of the legendary Cobra Movement.
Corneille was best known for his vividly colored paintings and his primitive looking, yet very sophisticated sculptures. Very few people know that Corneille was also a photographer who liked to explore eroticism.
