Brief Biography-Jan van Goyen was born in Leiden in 1596. He studied under five lower masters before visiting France and Belgium, and when he returned, he studied under Esaias van de Velde, who influenced him considerably. He worked in Haarlem for a while, eventually settling in Leiden and entering the Hague Guild of Saint Luke in 1640. A contemporary of his was Salomon van Ruysdael. In addition, he taught Nicolaes van Berchem and Jan Steen, who became his son-in-law. He died in the Hague in 1656 a poor man due to unwise investments.
