Sculptor, painter.

Fancelli enjoyed great popularity in Spain and was one of the outstanding artists of the Spanish Renaissance. However, his talent and efforts were not sufficient to prevent the rapid decline into decadence of his country's art. The exaggeration of the model, the pursuit of 'morbidezza' (delicacy of flesh tones) and of grace led his contemporaries and successors to bring a new stringency to their compositions. Convention took the place of reality, prettiness that of beauty and the grandeur of earlier works was replaced by a more mannered style. The power, boldness and somewhat austere and lofty nobility that had been the very essence of Spanish art collapsed, and along with these qualities, the movement and the relationship between living beings and the clothes they wore, also disappeared. Studies were based on mannequins instead of live models and all genuine expression of life vanished, giving way to the artificial and the unreal....

Leiden School, The Hague School, Flemish School.

Jan Josefsz. van Goyen's artistic career was actively encouraged by his father, who was a shoemaker by trade but also a connoisseur of paintings and drawings. He discovered a lifelong passion for landscape painting through his first teacher, Schilperoort, a landscape artist. Van Goyen subsequently studied briefly with Jan Nicolai, a noted painter and burgomaster, and Jan-Adrien de Man. Conscious of his son's versatility and talent, Van Goyen's father arranged for him to study glass painting under Hendrick Klock, an uninspiring prospect from which he soon disengaged himself, with his father's consent, in order to join the studio of Willem Gerritsz. in the northern Dutch town of Hoorn. Van Goyen's apprenticeship with Gerritsz., his fifth master, lasted for two years, after which he left on a tour of major French cities, now aged 19. In Paris around 1615 he painted a number of well-received landscapes and seascapes, shore scenes and views of sea defences - a genre as yet unknown in France. His work was rivalled only by that of the other non-French and provincial painters settled in Paris at that time, including Ferdinand Elle of Mechelen, François Pourbus of Bruges and George Lallemand of Nancy. Upon his return to Leiden, Van Goyen was enrolled by his father as a pupil of Esaias van der Velde (his sixth master, possibly the elder brother of Willem), a specialist in landscapes and battle scenes, noted for his expertly-drawn figures. Van Goyen made remarkable progress under Van der Velde and returned to Leiden after just one year, where he settled and married. It is possible that Van Goyen may have met Rembrandt here before 1631, when he left for The Hague (born in Leiden in 1608, Rembrandt was his junior by 12 years). Van Goyen remained in The Hague from 1631 until his death in 1665, founding a renowned school of painting whose pupils included Berghem, Vanderkabel, Herman Saftleven and Jan Steen, who became his son-in-law....
