Cor de Wolff was born in Middelburg in 1889 and died in Amsterdam in 1963. The painter/graphic artist Cor de Wolff started his artistic career as a craftsman, mainly making batiks, woodcuts and very beautiful etchings that are in high demand. At a later age he started painting. From the forties he has made some landscapes in an impressionistic way. Later he became innovative and followed his own path. He then expressed his hunger for movement and color in vital paintings full of fantasy, populated by wonderfully shaped figures, gesticulating exuberantly in them and painted in bright, smoothly applied colours. Pubs, folk fun, fairs and markets were his favorite subjects. There is something cheerful and cartoonish in his paintings at the same time. His statement "I would prefer to go out with a puppet show to show the citizens, farmers and country people how strange and how entertaining life is" applies to him. Much of his work is held by the Centraal Museum in Utrecht, but mainly by private collectors. Has also exhibited a lot in the municipal museum in Amsterdam and he was a member of the “Independents Amsterdam”. † Wolff, C. de (1889-1963). "Vision".
