By VAN GOGEN [sic], (John van,) a celebrated Dutch Landscape Painter, born at Leyden, in 1596, and died in 1656, aged 60; he was a disciple of Isaac Nicholas, and afterwards successively became the disciple of William Gerretsen and Esaias Vendervelde, the most celebrated landscape Painter of his time. The transparency of his water has been considered most wonderful. His best works are valued so highly in most parts of Europe, and especially in the low countries, that they deservedly afford large prices, being ranked in Holland, with the best pictures of Teniers.
