Andries Both was a Dutch genre painter and the son of a glass painter. He studied under Abraham Bloemaert. He was the brother of Jan Both, also a genre and landscape painter. The brothers lived and worked on the Via Vittoria in the parish of San Lorenzo in Lucina and both may have joined the Academia di San Luca and the group of mainly Dutch and Flemish artists active in Rome called the Bentvueghels, who painted scenes from the everyday life of the lower classes in Rome and its countryside.
