Klaes Molenaer specialised in painting the local population in vivid summer and winter views set outside his native Haarlem.

In the 17th century Haarlem was best-known for its beer, its linen and its bleaching fields. The very fields that now attract so many tourists to see the tulip fields were then used for bleaching linen and yarns.
