Evaristo Baschenis Biography

Evaristo Baschenis was an italian painter, the most prominent of a family of artists recorded from 1400. Baschenis was ordained c. 1647 and painted a few religious paintings, but his fame rests chiefly on his beautifully poised and polished still life paintings of muscial instruments. Baschenis' predilection for the subject may have been associated with the contemporary fame of the Amati family of violin-makers of Cremona.
