|Died||1648 (aged 64–65)
Goudt was born in Utrecht. According to Houbraken, he was in Rome at the same time as Adam Elsheimer and the two struck up a lasting friendship. Upon his return in the Netherlands, he made a series of prints of Elsheimer's work (popularizing, for example, Flight into Egypt), and also painted several copies of Elsheimer's paintings. Houbraken wrote that he was given an aphrodisiac in 1624 by a young lady who wished to marry him, and this addled his brain to the point that until his death he could only discuss art topics coherently.
He was in Rome in the years (1608–1610) and spent the rest of his life in Utrecht, where he died.
