Signature below the frame. Akkeringa was born in Banka, Indie. He was a pupil of the academy in Rotterdam and The Hague.
Akkeringa’s work can easily be identified by its cheerful nature and professional composition.
When he was 17, he started his education at The Hague academy of fine arts and, for the rest of his life, has a close friendship with his kindred spirit, the Impressionist Willem de Zwart with whom he, in the aftermath of The Hague School, would become the best known artist of the younger generation. Their close circle also included the painters Tholen and Arntzenius, from the Dutch-East Indies.
In The Hague, Akkeringa often worked in the dunes and made atmospheric scenes of small groups of people strolling and enjoying the tranquility, often with children in their company. He also had a preference for the making it look like it was done effortlessly, but in reality, they were very sophisticated flower still lifes.
In the work of the artists Akkeringa and the renowned Toorop, who was also from Dutch-Indies, the art dealer of Wisselingh recognised the corresponding qualities, which he found so characteristic of their different and Indian spirit, that he often exhibiting the two artists together.
Akkeringa's work is a part of Dutch collections in the Kroller Muller museum, the Hague municipality museum and the Boymans van Beuningen museum.
