Coenraet Roepel ( The Hague 1678 - The Hague 1748 )
Coenraet Roepel was born in 1678 in The Hague. He suffered from poor health, but recovered by gardening and became enthusiastic in painting flowers and fruit. The portrait painter Constantyn Netscher became his teacher - his influence may be regarded in several details of Roepel's paintings, particularly in architectural elements and sculptures in the background. He cooperated with Matthias Terwesten in wall decorations in The Hague, some still existing. Roepel was inscribed in the Confrerie Pictura in 1718 and became the deacon of the board later. Dated works by Coenraet Roepel are known between 1715 - 1738. He died in 1748.
