Jan Wijnants (Haarlem, 1632-Amsterdam, 1684) is known for his dune landscapes near Haarlem. He frequently chose dry trees as the main feature in the foreground and populated his compositions with shepherds, farmers, hunters and travellers. These figures were usually painted by other artists such as Johannes Lingelbach and Adriaen van de Velde, the latter probably a pupil of Wijnants. Several dutch landscapes by Jan Wijnants are housed in the National Gallery in London.
