Evaristo Baschenis

Still-life with Musical Instruments
(b Bergamo, 7 Dec 1617; d Bergamo, 16 March 1677). 

Italian painter. He came from a family of painters originally from Averara, Lombardy, but with different branches active in the provinces of Bergamo and Trentino, mostly specializing in fresco decoration of churches. He probably started working within the same regional tradition but soon came to specialize in still-lifes and moved beyond his family’s limited and provincial style to create a richer and more complex art.
