Guillaume Corneille van Beverloo, better known as Corneille (Liège, 3 July 1922 - Auvers-sur-Oise (France), 5 September 2010) was a Dutch Cobra painter. Corneille was born in Liège, Belgium, to Dutch parents. Although largely self-taught, he attended art courses at the Amsterdam State Academy between 1940 and 1942. In 1946 he held his first exhibition in Groningen.
Initially heavily influenced by Picasso's work, he broke away from it in 1948 and joined the Cobra movement; he is co-founder of it, together with the Dutch Karel Appel, Jan Nieuwenhuijs, his brother Constant Nieuwenhuijs and the Belgians Christian Dotremont and Joseph Noiret, among others.
