Born in Haarlem in 1816, Fredrik Marinus Kruseman showed an early talent for drawing. He was the fourth son of Benjamin Philip Kruseman, a Lutheran hat-maker, and cousin to both Cornelis Kruseman, Director of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Amsterdam and a painter of historical and biblical subjects, and Jan Adam Kruseman, a historical painter and portraitist. Fredrik studied under many of the great Dutch landscapists of the nineteenth century school.
From 1833 he was apprenticed to Jan Reekers from whom he learnt drawing from nature and the rules of perspective. Between 1832 and 1833 Kruseman also attended classes at the City Drawing School and he studied painting with Nicholas Roosenboom, who had a studio near where Kruseman lived. Roosenboom was the son-in-law and pupil of the great artist Andreas Schelfhout and it is likely that Kruseman would have come into contact with Schelfhout as he was a regular visitor to Roosenboom’s studio.
In the September of 1833 the artist made his debut at the Exhibition for Living Masters in The Hague, exhibiting a landscape.
