The Haarlem artist Cornelis Lieste painted landscapes in the best romantic tradition. He attended the Drawing Academy of B.C. Koekoek in Kleve and was a pupil of J. Reekers and N.J. Roosenboom. Sometimes he worked as an assistant to the painters Charles Rochussen, Hendrikus van de Sande Bakhuyzen and Eugène Verboeckhoven. In 1840 he made a study trip to Belgium and Germany (it is possible he attended the aforementioned academy in Kleve at this time). Between 1854 and 1856 he worked in Oosterbeek. Lieste namely painted winter landscapes with dramatic backlighting on wide expanses of ice, highly exaggerated by bare trees. He received various awards for his work and several major museums have Lieste’s work in their collection.
