Hermanus Koekkoek was the youngest son and a pupil of the marine painter Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek, forebear of the Koekkoek family of painters. Born in Middelburg, he subsequently lived in the Zuider Zee village of Durgerdam until moving to Amsterdam in 1833. During his fifty-year career, Koekkoek enjoyed great success as a painter of seascapes, beach and river scenes. His father's influence is evident in his detailed depiction of ships and their rigging, masterful illustration of water and animated narrative embellishments. As well as his own sons, Hermanus Koekkoek also taught the marine painter Willem Gruijter the Younger.
