Inspired by B.C.Koekkoek – Acrylic Painting

painted by Pat Harrison aka Rainer Hillebrand

after Bahrend Cornelis Koekkoek

The painting was created in preparation for a show in Cleves later this year. A painter friend and I have been invited to paint at the Koekkoek museum in Cleves. To people in Britain the town is perhaps better known for Anne of Cleves the fourth wife of King Henry VIII from 6 January to 9 July 1540.

B.C.Koekkoek belonged to a family of successful Dutch artists of the early 19th century. Both his father and two brothers created wonderful paintings telling us about everyday life of their times. Some of his works can be seen in museums in England. The paintings still fetch 6 figure numbers at Christies.

My acrylic painting on Hahnemuhle fine art carton is 30x40cm in size while the original oil on canvas is a bit larger 38.5 x 52 cm. The connoisseur will easily detect the differences. You are welcome to let me know your thoughts.
