Dutch painter, sculptor, writer and teacher, involved during part of his life in revolutionary activity.
He attended Cornelis Kruseman's studio together with other artists of this period, such as Alexander Hugo Bakker Korff, David Bles and Herman ten Kate.
He designed several monuments such as the award-winning design for a national monument in 1813, and the monument to the Duke of Saxony-Weimar in The Hague.
Between 1846 and 1851 Koelman lived in Rome, where he found himself involved in the revolutionary Roman Republic of 1849, and eventually joined Garibaldi's defence of Rome against the French Army.
Koelman's memoirs of that period are used as source material for historians researching Garibaldi's life and the struggle which eventually led to the Unification of Italy, providing some details not recorded elsewhere.
Koelman died at 11:30pm on 10 January 1893 in The Hague.
