    After training as a painter in Rotterdam, Cornelis Saftleven may have visited Antwerp in 1632-4, where he became familiar with the work of Brouwer and Teniers. By circa 1634 he was in Utrecht with his brother, Herman Saftleven II. In 1637 Cornelis returned to Rotterdam, becoming dean of the Guild of St. Luke in 1667.
