Wijnants came from Haarlem and this picture shows the dune landscape between that town and the coast. It is unlikely to represent a specific location.The figures and animals are probably by Jan Lingelbach (1622 - 1674), and the picture probably dates from the 1660s when Wijnants and Lingelbach were both living in Amsterdam.
