The landscape artist Anton Koster was born in Zeeland. In 1880 he settled for a time in The Hague, where he trained in painting at the city’s academy of art. He then embarked on a two-year study trip to the Pyrenees. The sense of warm, vibrant colours he encountered there was practically translated into his work after 1902, when he moved permanently to Haarlem and then settled in nearby Heemstede to concentrate on painting the bulb fields. Even to this day he is still one of the most gifted exponents of the genre.
