Historical Artist - Jan Asselyn (1614 - 1670)

Jan Asselyn spent most of his career in Amsterdam, though he lived in Italy for a few years beginning in the late 1930’s. Although most of his work consisted of landscapes, his most famous work is titled The Threatened Swan, which is thought to be a work of Dutch patriotism.

He was one of the first Dutch painters who introduced a fresh and clear manner of painting landscapes in the style of Claude Lorraine, and his example was speedily followed by other artists. Asselijn's pictures were in high estimation at Amsterdam, and several of them are in the museums of that city.
