Cornelis Christiaan Dommersen was a Dutch painter and a watercolourist.
Cornelis Christiaan's older brother was Pieter Cornelis Dommersen (1833-1918), who was also born in Utrecht. Pieter Cornelis was a painter as well, gaining more fame than his younger brother. Both were the illegitimate sons of Cornelia Henriette Dommershuizen (in fact, Cornelia had 4 more illegitimate children). In around 1850 Pieter Cornelis Dommersen moved to England and stayed there till his death in Hexham in 1918.
Cornelis Christiaan specialized just like his brother in sea -and river scapes and coastal scenery as those paintings had found a revival during the 19th century in Europe. He traveled abroad to countries such as England, America, Belgium and France, just like his countryman Abraham Hulk Senior did. However, in the end he found satisfaction painting not only river- and seascapes in the Netherlands but also the interior of villages and towns along the rivers.
His work can be found in the museums of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht.
