biography of Willem Gruijter jr.

Willem Gruijter woonde en werkte in Amsterdam en was leerling van de beroemde marineschilder Hermanus Koekkoek sr. Evenals zijn leermeester schilderde Gruijter vrijwel uitsluitend zee- en riviergezichten. Zijn zoon Jacob Willem trad in zijn voetsporen en wijdde zich ook aan het schilderen van marines. In de periode 1840-1880 was zijn werk in Amsterdam en Den Haag regelmatig te zien op de jaarlijks terugkerende Tentoonstelling van Levende Meesters. In 1845 werd Willem Gruijter lid van de Koninklijke Academie in Amsterdam en in 1853 van de kunstenaarssociëteit 'Arti et Amicitiae'.
