Frederik Marinus Kruseman received his first drawing lessons from still life painter Jan Reekers (1790 – 1858), who at the time was Director of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam; and who had also tutored his cousin Jan Adam while attending a vocational school in Haarlem from 1832 to 1833.
In 1833 he then began to study painting with Dutch Painter, Engraver, Lithographer, Watercolorist and Illustrator Nicolaas Johannes Roosenboom (1805 – 1880).
Then in 1835 he moved to Het Gooi in the center of the Nertherlands, where he took advanced studies with Dutch Landscape Painter Jan van Ravenswaay (1789 – 1869); as well as studying for a brief period of time with Dutch Landscape Painter and Lithographer Barend Cornelis Koekkoek (1803 – 1862).
He later returned to Haarlem and from there to Kleve in northwestern Germany where he painted landscapes, before returning home in 1839.
In 1841 he moved to Brussels and stayed there until 1852, except for a brief period of a few months when he went to Paris. In 1852 he went back home to Haarlem and stayed there for four years, after which he went to Belgium, where he remained until his death in 1882.
