Dutch coastal view with various craft , figures and a barn
Oil on canvas, signed and dated 1865 ,21 1/4ins x 30 1/4 ins (canvas) 28ins x 37ins (framed) ,
Part of the famed Dutch family of painters and the son Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek (1778-1851), the founding father of the family. Hermanus was principally a marine painter like his father.
His works were of a higher quality than his father's and are considered, along with his brother Barend Cornelis,as some of the best paintings from the Dutch romantic period. This particular scene with a fishing barge setting off on an inland waterway shows Koekkoek wonderful attention to detail and quality of painting.
