Willem Gillisz. Kool was a Haarlem painter of beach and landscape views in the style of Jan van Goyen; this is evident in the brownish or monochrome tonality of his works, as well as in the assurance with which staffage is introduced. Kool also displays excellent aerial perspective, and for this reason he, at times, includes prominent buildings in his compositions.
