Jan Koekkoek was a renowned Dutch marine artist, born in Amsterdam. Part of the illustrious Koekkoek Painting Family, he learned art from his father and exhibited his talent at the Exhibition of Living Masters in 1859. Koekkoek’s early works resembled his father’s style, but after relocating to Hilversum in 1864, he embraced the influence of the Laren School and the Hague School. This transformation led him to depict peaceful scenes of fishermen and their families rather than dramatic ocean views. Koekkoek, a member of Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam, also shared his artistic wisdom with others, including landscape painter Lion Schulman. His legacy lived on through his son Gerardus Johannes, who also painted landscapes and maritime scenes. Koekkoek’s artworks are displayed in prestigious institutions like the Rijksmuseum, ensuring his lasting impact on the world of art.
