Fredrik Marinus Kruseman ( 1816 - 1882)
Fredrik Marinus Kruseman was born in Haarlem, 12th July 1816 to a family, which included a number of artists amongst their relatives, including Jan Adam Kruseman, Director of the Academy of Art in Amsterdam. This latter artist’s tutor had been Jan Reekers (1790-1858) and it was to him also that Fredrik was apprenticed. He subsequently studied under Nicolaas Roosenboom (1805-1880), the former pupil and son-in-law of Andreas Schelfhout (1787-1870) and in 1837 received instruction in Kleve from Barend Cornelis Koekkoek (1803-1862).
