  • H.P. Koekkoek (1843-1890)

    Pieter Hendrik Koekkoek (The Netherlands 1843-1890) was a Dutch painter, the grandson of the famous seascape painter Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek. His father Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek was more specialized in romantic landscapes. The talents of his ancestors come together in the work by Hermanus Pieter.

    The Koekkoek family has brought us 16 succesful painters in 4 generations, worldwide the biggest family of painters.

    Pieter Hendrik Koekkoek (usually signed with H.P. Koekkoek) was best known for his landscapes. His paintings often show tranquil landscapes, with a sense of serenity and harmony.


    In the 1860s and 1870s, he painted in the same romantic style as his father, mainly landscapes and forest scenes. Later, his style would become more realistic. He had the reputation of being a great nature lover.

    Koekkoek often travelled back and forth between the Netherlands (Amsterdam and The Hague) and England, where his cousin Hermanus Koekkoek the Younger ran an art gallery. That's the reason much of his work was sold on the English market.
