442. 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. The two lower paintings are from the outstanding collection at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

443. Frank Duveneck (1848 -1919) was an American figure and portrait painter. He was born in Covington, Kentucky. By the age of fifteen Frank began the study of art. In 1869 he went abroad to study at the Royal Academy of Münich, where he learned a dark, realistic and direct style of painting. He subsequently became one of the young American painters - others were William Merritt Chase, John Henry Twachtman, and Walter Shirlaw - who in the 1870s overturned the traditions of the Hudson River School and started a new art movement. In 1878 Duveneck opened a school in Munich. His students included Twachtman, Otto Bacher, Julius Rolshoven, and Herman Wessel. The below oils are owned by the Figge Art Museum, Davenport, Iowa.
