Cornelis Springer (1817, Amsterdam – 1891, Hilversum), was a Dutch 19th century cityscape painter.

He was a pupil of his father, the carpenter Willem Springer (1778–1857). He was a pupil of the painters Hendrik Gerrit ten Cate, Kasparus Karsen, and Jacobus van der Stok. He became a believer of the Amsterdam painters accumulate Felix Meritis and won a gold medal for a painting of a church interior in 1847. He is known for watercolors, etchings, and drawings, especially of city views and town scenes that he sketched even though traveling more or less the country. He was awarded the Leopold order of Belgium in 1865, and in 1878 he was invited as soon as Jozef Israëls to advise the Dutch Ministry of Public Affairs on the plans for the Rijksmuseum.

His son Leonard Springer became a landscape architect.
