About the Artist

(1618-1652) This Dutchman was a painter, a draughtsman as well as an engraver. He was known for portraying scenes with figures, genre scenes, village scenes and landscapes with figures.

"Jan Both, who has often been called Both of Italy, is the most famous of the Dutch masters to have reproduced Italian beauty spots. At the outset he was a pupil of his father, Dirck Both, a talented master in glass, then he worked with his brother Andries at Utrecht under the guidance of Abraham Bloemaert. He left the Netherlands for France at a relatively young age, and toward the mid 1630's he became thoroughly familiar with Italy.  

This artist distinguished himself through his deft handling of atmospheric effects and his attention to minute detail. . . His engravings are equally remarkable for their exquisite execution."  Benezit Dictionary of Artists
