'This painting, with bare-branched alder trees and bulb fields, must have been made on one of my grandfather’s favourite places. He left early in the morning with his painting box and sketchbook to his beloved flower fields in order to catch the most beautiful early light. This work is dated; something he rarely did. In 1910 he lived in the Spruytenboschstraat in Haarlem and my father Floris, then 13 years old, was still living at home.'
