Jan van Call (1655-1703) was an artist born, according to Descamps, at Nijmegen in 1655. He is said to have attained considerable proficiency in painting without the help of an instructor. His first attempts were made in copying the landscapes of Jan Brueghel, Paulus Bril, and Willem van Nieulant, and he studied attentively the principles of perspective and architecture. He afterwards travelled through Switzerland to Italy, and, during a residence of some years at Rome, formed an ample collection of designs from the most picturesque views in the environs of that capital. He returned through Germany to his native country, and established himself at the Hague, where he died in 1703. His drawings are more esteemed than his pictures; they are purchased at considerable prices in the Netherlands

dbo:abstract
  • Jan van Call (Nijmegen, 1656 - Den Haag, 1703 of 1706) was een Nederlands schilder en graveur. Van Call was een autodidact die bekend werd van de vele landschappen, stadsgezichten en gebouwen die hij tekende en graveerde. Hij maakte een lange reis via Duitsland en Zwitserland, langs de Rijn, naar Rome waarbij hij onderweg vele werken maakte. Vandaar reisde hij (mogelijk samen met Johan Teyler) via Malta naar Alexandrië, Caïro en Aleppo. In zijn laatste jaren tekende hij ook veldslagen en belegeringen uit de Spaanse Successieoorlog. Door Pieter Schenck werden 72 van zijn prenten uitgegeven onder de titel Admirandum quadruplex spectaculum. Zijn zoon Pieter (1688) heeft zijn laatste oorlogswerken voltooid en maakte ook zelf stadsgezichten van onder andere Kleef. Zijn andere zoon Jan (1689) werkte als kunstenaar onder andere voor de koning van Pruisen (1714) en schilderde in Brabant en Vlaanderen vestingen die tijdens de Zevenjarige Oorlog belegerd werden door de Fransen.

His drawings are more esteemed than his pictures; they are purchased at considerable prices in the Netherlands, where they are found in the choicest collections. It is believed that he occasionally worked in conjunction with Bakhuisen. A series of views from his drawings, chiefly representing scenes on the Rhine, have been published by Schenk. He was also clever as an engraver, his plates being principally landscapes from his own designs. (en)
