Koekkoek, Johannes Hermanus

Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek trained under Thomas Gaal, working in a wallpaper and carpet factory, and at the same time took drawing lessons at the Middleburg Drawing Academy, winning the Primus of the Academy prize. After graduating he was a drawing teacher for a long time. In 1826 he with his family moved to Amsterdam, he started by painting many cityscapes with water, but later he changed to painting seascapes. He was one of the first Dutch marine painters at the beginning of the nineteenth century who looked for inspiration from the famous Dutch Golden Age of marine painters. His painting style was realistic but also influenced by the rise of Romanticism.

Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek was the head of an artistic family and taught his four sons to paint. His sons Barend Cornelis Koekkoek and Hermanus Koekkoek specialized in marine art, and Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek and Johannes Koekkoek became landscape painters. Several of his grandchildren, including Johannes Hermanus Barend Koekkoek, also became artists.
