Jan Frans van Bloemen [Orizzonte]          Pages: 1


(b Antwerp, bapt 12 May 1662; d Rome, 13 June 1749).

Brother of  Pieter van Bloemen. He was married in Rome in 1693, and the Dutch artist Caspar van Wittel, known as ‘Vanvitelli’, was godfather to the couple’s first child, baptized in 1694. Although patronized by aristocratic Roman families, Orizzonte’s artistic career was marred by his prolonged confrontation with the Accademia di S Luca. The precise reasons for the difficulties are unknown, but he was only finally accepted by the Accademia at the age of 80, after his third application for membership.
