Sipke Kool was born in 1836 in Leeuwarden, a small city in Friesland, a province in the north west of the Netherlands, where he spent his childhood and teenage years. In his twenties Kool moved to The Hague, where he studied in the studio of the Dutch painter and lithographer Christoffel Bisschop. Following his masters teaching, Kool became a specialist in paintings of Frisian peasant interiors from the northern and costal parts of the Netherlands.

 Through his delicately executed genre scenes, Kool captured the Dutch way of life in the later part of the nineteenth-century. Kool excelled in smaller scale decorative compositions and carefully arranged still lives, and occasionally also painted Biblical scenes and Italianate landscapes. His carefully constructed vignettes were widely collected during the artists life time and can be found in many notable private and public collections including the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague.
