Cornelis Kuipers was born on July 23, 1739 in Dordrecht. He learned to draw at an early age and it was intended that he would become a 'rough painter'. He spent his apprenticeship in The Hague with Johan Hendrik Keller (ca. 1698-1765) and with his pupil Dirk van der Aa (1731-1809), where ceilings, room wallpapers, panels for carriages and chimney and door pieces were painted. Keller often gave Kuipers the opportunity to perform art paintings. After his education, Cornelis Kuipers settled in his native city, where he married Adriana Booy on January 1, 1764. Kuipers ran a successful painting shop and decorated the houses of prominent Dordrecht dignitaries. Examples of this are the chimneypiece for the Maaskamer, a still existing domed room in the house Wolwershaven 9, and in 1778 a Louis XV-style chimneypiece for a house in the Wijnstraat. He also painted the organ and pulpit in the Lutheran church. In addition to wallpapers, he painted landscapes, flower arrangements and portraits.
