Cornelis Leonardsz Stooter (1595, in Leiden – 1655, in Leiden) was a Dutch Golden Age landscape painter. Though known today for seacapes, his subjects were diverse, including a flower piece and various genre scenes. He married in Leiden in February 1623 and worked there for the rest of his life. In 1648 he became the first deacon of the new Leiden Guild of St. Luke. The painter always signed briefly STO.
