Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek was born in Middelburg, the Netherlands into one of the most highly regarded artistic families of the Dutch Romantic era. He was the second son of Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek, the Dutch painter and draughtsman and his brothers Barend Cornelius and Hermanus were both successful artists in their own right. Along with his elder brother Barend, Marinus began specializing in landscape painting in 1837. The two of them shared a studio in Kleve where they both produced works with an acute attention to detail and an emphasis on botanical accuracy.
