Jan Lievens (Lievensz)

1607-1674 Holland- Baroque

 

Brief Biography- Jan Lievens was from Leiden where he began his training in art when he was only eight years old. From the age of ten to twelve he studied in Amsterdam under Pieter Lastman. When back in Leiden he worked with Rembrandt for a period of five years; both men had an influence on each other's work. He worked in London for three years before moving to Antwerp where he was influenced by the styles of Anthony van Dyck and Peter Paul Rubens. The remainder of his life was spent in Amsterdam where he received numerous commissions notably those for the Burgomasters' chamber in the town hall of Amsterdam.
