Little is known about the life of Hans van Sant. He worked in at Haarlem in circa 1630, possibly as an ‘amateur’ painter, as his name does not occur in the guild records. Works by Hans van Sant have been attributed to Pieter Claesz. and Willem Heda in the past. The influence of these masters is also apparent in the present painting.
