Corneille stood at the cradle of Cobra. After the breakup of the group, Cobra remains important to him, which is mainly visible in the childlike imagery. In 1947 he came into contact with surrealist art and literature. Surrealism unleashes a new freedom of fantasy in Corneille.
A trip to Cuba, South America and Mexico in the mid-1960s marked the end of his sombre and abstract canvases. Corneille has no explanation for this: "It just happened." Color and movement returned to his work, making it much more cheerful, influenced by the art of indigenous tribes. His work is figurative and he uses motifs such as women, trees and birds.
Corneille does not make sketches or plans before starting a painting. "I start simple and the subject doesn't matter that much. It's about the intensity."
