Johannes Jansz. Collaert

c. 1622 – after 1678, Amsterdam

The little-known Amsterdam painter and draughtsman Johannes Jansz. Collaert evidently made a trip to Italy in 1646. In February 1647 he got married in Amsterdam, where he had been working as a landscape painter. Only a few paintings signed by him have survived. The composition of these works shows the influence of Jan Both and Herman Saftleven. Furthermore, contemporary sources indicate that the Italianate Jan Asselijn was responsible for the staffage figures on at least one of Collaert’s landscape paintings.
