Cornelis Dusart

1660-1704 Holland/ Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Cornelis Dusart, genre painter from Haarlem was a disciple of Adriaen van Ostade. In 1679 he entered the Haarlem Guild of Saint Luke. His works were in the manner of Ostade but never quite of the same quality, however he remained a very successful artist. He completed some of Ostade’s paintings which he inherited after his demise.
He took inspiration from several prints and drawings he acquired from his close friend Adam Dingemans who was a collector. One day Adam left him to go and fetch a drawing and when he returned a half hour later he found Cornelis dead on his bed. On the same day, Adam himself died, it was assumed from the shock of finding his friend dead. They were interred together in the same church.
