The Dutch painter prince Barend Cornelis Koekkoek was made acquainted with painting early on by his parents, since his father Johannes Hermanus was already known as a marine painter. It is therefore not surprising that his father's studio was also his favorite place and his father his first teacher. He shared his childhood hobby with his four brothers at an early age, and at the age of 14 he eventually expanded it into the local drawing academy. There he learned to paint according to the model of Abraham Krayestein. Five years later Koekkoek received a scholarship from the Dutch King William I, after which he began studying in the new Royal Academy of Fine Arts with Jan Willem Pieneman and Jean Augustin Daiwaille . At the age of 20, he had a diploma and received several awards.

With his teacher Daiwallie he made some study trips to the Harz, to Italy and to the Rhine, where he was completely fascinated by the landscapes and finally Kleve as his new hometown auserkor. "Nature is the perfect painting," he always said, idealizing his landscape paintings in the Romantic style. Later, he married the daughter of his teacher Elise Thérèse Daiwaille, who was also a painter, but focused on still life. The couple had five daughters, two of whom followed in the footsteps of their parents and also became painters. In Kleve he finally founded a Collegium for landscape painting, in which he let the students paint on model, as he had learned it himself.

One of his major works "Blick auf Königstein an der Elbe" was created in the 1950s. Koekoek places an oak tree in the foreground on the left and to the right opens a view into the Saxon Switzerland with the Elbe Valley. At the foot of the mountains is the town church of Königstein and behind it the Elbe with the regionally typical cargo gliders. On the other side of the river you can see the town Halbestadt. In the horizon you can see the little ones and the big bear stone. The picture looks idyllic to the viewer, with untouched nature.

Koekkoek was more successful in his lifetime than many other artists. His artistic activity came to a sudden end at the age of 56 years by a stroke. © Meisterdrucke
