This landscape is characteristic of the sandy dunes which lie between the artist's native town of Haarlem and the coast, but it is unlikely to represent a specific location.
Throughout his career dune landscapes remained Wijnants's principal subject. The figures are probably by Wijnants' frequent collaborator, the Amsterdam painter Jan Lingelbach.
