Co Breman trained at the Academy in Brussels. In 1897 he moved to Blaricum and then to Laren, where he became one of the painters of the Laren School. Breman painted carefully composed landscapes and farms, bathed in sunlight, and colourful interiors and figures. Light at a certain point of the day or season particularly captured his interest. This was often expressed in words through the titles he gave his paintings. Along with Ferdinand Hart Nibbrig, he was one of the first Dutch painters to employ the pointillist technique.
