Frans de Hulst lives and worked in Haarlem, his earliest pictures resemble the technique and style of Salomon van Ruysdael. It is suggested Frans de Hulst was his student, but since there is no proof this is unknown. In 1631 De Hulst became a member of the Haarlem Saint Luke’s gild. In 1642 he was the gild's secretary. De Hulst’s most famous paintings are landscapes with dunes or rivers with towers like this one. These pictures from the 1640’s resemble the works of Jan van Goyen.
This painting is typical for landscapepainting in mid seventeenth century Haarlem. It is a well preserved example of Frans de Hulst’s work.
