KOETS, Roelof
(b. ca. 1592, Haarlem, d. 1655, Haarlem)


Dutch painter. Together with his Haarlem contemporaries Floris van Dijck, Nicolaes Gillis, and Floris van Schooten, he was one of the earliest Dutch still-life painters.

Koets collaborated on a number of still-life paintings with Claesz, particularly large-scale banquet pieces. In general, Koets painted the fruit pieces, while Claesz executed the rest of the compositions.
