The professional officer Martinus Kuytenbrouwer painted for his own pleasure. Mostly animals and landscapes with horses or cows in meadows, polders and forest scenes with cattle, or a Gelders landscape. The work of the Italian baroque painter Salvator Rosa (1615-1673) was a great source of inspiration for hem. Kuytenbrouwer became a member of the Royal Academy in Amsterdam in 1822, later from the Provinciaals Utrechts Genootschap van Kunsten en Wetenschappen. He exhibited his paintings regularly at exhibitions.
