Jan Both
Italian Landscape

1645 Visible à Salle 12

It is mainly the light that stands out in this idyllic landscape. Everything is bathed in the warm, golden light of a low sun. Some travellers are crossing a mountain path and stop to relieve themselves. In between the trees, we can see the calm water of a lake.

When he was twenty, Jan Both went south and lived a few years in Italy, where he took inspiration for this type of sun-drenched mountain landscape. Upon returning to his hometown of Utrecht, he painted dozens of them.
