van Goyen Jan Josefszoon


Jan Josefszoon van Goyen (13 January 1596 - 27 April 1656), Dutch painter.

Dutch landscape painter, he studied in Leiden and in Haarlem, where his teacher was Esaias van de Velde. By 1631 he settled in The Hague, where he became the leader of the local artist guild in 1640.

Using a very personal style, van Goyen put the accent on perspective and light, using mainly greens and greys, and his landscapes therefore gained a melancholic touch. O pioneer of naturalist landscape in Holland, he would later influence the Dutch art.

He was a prolific artist, producing more than 1000 paintings and 800 drawings, most of them inspired by his voyages in Germany and the Netherlands.
