COESERMANS Johannes (active 1660s in Delft) Nationality : Dutch
Dutch painter. He joined the painters' guild in Delft as an out-of-towners in 1661. His few known works bear dates of 1660,1663, and 1664. Two of his undated oil paintings, derived from compositions by Gerard Houckgeest and Hendrick van Vliet, represent interior views of the Oude Kerk in Delft. The rest of his identified oeuvre consists of pen paintings in grisaille: two small marines, an ideal townscape, and three church interiors. The artist's eclecticism and - for an architectural painter - unexpected technique suggest that he may have been an amateur pursuing a gentlemanly interest in drawings and architecture.
