Born in Utrecht, brother of Andris Botha . According to Houbraken , the brothers learned to draw from their father, who was a glass artist. Later, Jan was a student of Abraham Bloemart .. He left his native Holland at twenty, traveled to France and Italy . In 1638, Ian and his brother were in Rome, where Ian worked on landscapes in the style of Claude Lorren . In 1639, Jan collaborated with Herman van Suanevel and Claude Lorraine on a project for the Buena Retiro Palace in Madrid. In 1646, the artist returned to Utrecht, where he continued to work on landscapes, improving them.
His paintings are compositions depicting a mostly romanticized Italian landscape , sometimes with figures of peasants, shepherds, travelers. A distinctive feature is the golden color - we can say that with the creativity of Jan Botha sunlight entered the Dutch landscape painting . He influenced Jan Baptist Venix and Albert Cape , who after him also became "singers of sunlight."
Collaborated with his brother Andris Bot , Cornelius van Pulenburg and Nikolaus Knüpfer .
