JAN FRANS VAN BLOEMEN (1662—1740), Flemish painter, was born at Antwerp, and studied and lived in Italy. At Rome he was styled Orizonte, on account of his painting of distance in his landscapes, which are reminiscent of Gaspard Poussin and much admired. His brothers Pieter (1657-1719), Styled Standaart (from his military pictures), and Norbert (1670—1746), were also well-known painters.
