Jan Both: 'A Rocky Italian Landscape with Herdsmen and Muleteers'

Explore the paintings

Jan Both used sketches he had made during his sojourn in Italy for a series of idyllic landscapes suffused by rich, golden light. This landscape shows a mountain pass in the countryside near Rome, but it was painted after Both's return from the south.

It is thought to have been executed in the mid-1640s. Two variants of the composition are recorded.
