Italian, 17th century, male.

Born 1607, probably in Bergamo; died 1677, in Bergamo.

Painter. Battles, figures, portraits, interiors with figures, still-lifes (including musical instruments).

Bergamo School.

Baschenis was ordained in 1647 but it appears he did not remain long in the priesthood. In fact, very little is known of his life, perhaps because very little of personal import occurred: he was, quite simply, a painter.
