Son of the marine artist Hermanus Koekkoek Sr, Willem was the only member of this extensive family of painters to specialise in Dutch cityscapes, with Cornelis Springer as his great example. His paintings combine historical reconstruction and fantasy. His work was especially popular outside the Netherlands as it conformed to the idealistic image people had of its old Dutch towns.
