Hendrikus van de Sande Bakhuyzen was taught drawing by the landscape and historical painter J. Heijmans and painting by S.A. Krausz, who specialised in landscapes and interiors. Van de Sande Bakhuyzen painted mostly landscapes with figures and animals as staffage. He was a member of The Hague Drawing Society and in 1824 travelled to Belgium and in 1834 to Germany. His many pupils included his son Julius Jacobus, his daughter Gerardine Jacoba, his nephew Alexander Hieronymus Bakhuyzen Jnr, W. Roelofs, P. Stortenbeker and M.P. Bilders-van Bosse.
