Biography Cornelius De Beet
Born and trained in Amsterdam, Cornelius de Beet immigrated to Baltimore around 1810, the year in which his name first appeared in the city directories. Subsequent listings through 1840 identify him variously as an ornamental, landscape and fancy painter (Johnston, p. 44).
De Beet exhibited landscape and still life subjects at the Pennsylvania Academy from 1812 until 1832, and at the Peale Museum in 1822. Most of the landscapes were views of the Baltimore countryside. "View on Jones's Falls, near Baltimore" (1812; location unknown) was one of the earliest. The subject so attracted de Beet that he painted several additional views along the modern Falls Road, including "Hollingsworth Mill on the Jones Falls"
