Barend Cornelis Koekkoek, 1803-1862, was a Dutch landscape artist. Koekkoek’s own paintings reveal a careful study and synthesis of Dutch
seventeenth-century painters. The golden light and the inclusion of travellers in his art suggests Koekkoek also admired the Dutch Italianate painters of the seventeenth century. Barend Cornelis Koekkoek is widely regarded as the most accomplished landscape painter of Dutch romanticism, against whose scrupulously refined oil paintings that his contemporaries is measured. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
