Jacobus (Co) Westerik (The Hague, March 2, 1924 – Rotterdam, September 10, 2018) was a Dutch painter. He received his education at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

After graduating in 1947, Westerik made the painting De Visvrouw, which won him the Jacob Maris Prize for painting in 1951. In 1953 and 1954 he was awarded the Royal Grant for Painting. This unleashed a stream of positive and, above all, negative publicity in discussions in the newspapers. Despite the latter, his work was bought by museums, including the Kunstmuseum Den Haag, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen Rotterdam, and private collectors.

Westerik made paintings, watercolors, drawings, lithographs and etchings. He worked daily, half of the year in his studio in Rotterdam and the summer months in the south of France.

From 1958 to 1971 Westerik taught figure drawing at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Westerik was part of the Verve group with the Hague artists Herman Berserik, Jan van Heel, Willem Hussem and Jaap Nanninga. He was a classmate of Cornelis Zitman, Henk Peeters and Toon Wegner, with whom he also traveled.

Westerik had three daughters from his marriage to painter Hens de Jong and two sons from his second marriage to gallery owner Fenna de Vries. His eldest daughter died in 1992.

Westerik himself passed away in 2018 at the age of 94, after being ill for a long time.
