In order to avoid confusions I decided to make a single folder for all this big and amazing family of artists. I need to do more investigations in the future abaut every of these painters. A lot of new paintings are to be added here, especially from B. C. Koekkoek wich is one of my favorite painters of all times.
Barend Cornelis Koekkoek (1803-1862) came to be known during his lifetime as the “Prince of Landscape Painting” and was by far the most applauded landscapist of his time and regarded as the founding father of Dutch romantic landscape painting. The recipient of endless awards and decorations, he counted among his clients King Friedrich-Wilhelm IV of Prussia, Tsar Alexander II, and King Willem II of the Netherlands. His father Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek (1778–1851) was a renowned marine painter, from whom he received his earliest tuition. His brothers Hermanus Koekkoek (1815–1882) and Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek (1807–1868) were both successful artists, the first as a painter of marine subjects and river scenes, the second as a landscapist. dan.servici: Willem Koekkoek (1839-1895) was grandson of Jan Hermanus Koekkoek (1778-1851) and nephew to Barend Cornelis (1803-1862) and Marinus Adrianus (1807-1868) while Johannes Barend Cornelis Koekkoek (1840-1912) was the son of artist Barend Cornelis Koekkoek
