Ketel was apprenticed to the painter Anthonie van Blokland in Delft from 1634. In 1635 he moved to Paris, but had soon to return to the Netherlands because of the political circumstances. Here, however, jobs were scarce, and he moved again, this time to London, where he worked at the English court from 1573. In 1581 he returned to Holland and settled in Amsterdam, where he died in 1616 68 years old.
