391. Jan Both (1615/18-1652) was born in Utrecht in 1618. From 1634 to 1637 he was taught by the painter Gerard van Honthorst. Like his brother and fellow artist Andries Both he worked for a period in Rome. There he met the Frenchman Claude Lorrain, with whom he collaborated on a series of landscape paintings. The everyday life of the streets of Rome became a favorite theme in his works. On his return to Utrecht (probably in 1642) he stopped producing genre pieces and focused instead on pictures of Italian landscapes bathed in a warm, golden light. This was a theme several other Dutch painters had also adopted: they were known as the Italianates. All three of the lower paintings are from the outstanding collection at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
