Free for Members Included with General Admission   In the 16th and 17th centuries, many young Dutch painters traveled to Italy to study the popular styles of painting—leading to the formation of two large schools of painting style, the Caravaggisti and the Dutch Italianates. Jan Both’s Landscape with Travelers on a Path near a Waterfall invites us into the world of the Dutch Italianates.
