1549, Jan 261592, Jul 4
an Italian painter of the Renaissance period. He was born at Bassano del Grappa near Venice, the eldest son of Jacopo Bassano and grandson of Francesco da Ponte the Elder. He moved to Venice where he ran the branch of the family business, and where he was employed to paint a series of historical pictures in the Doge's Palace. He was prone to hypochondria, which exasperated his other ailments and he committed suicide by autodefenestration soon after his father's death in 1592. His third brother Leandro Bassano continued the family legacy of painting.
