Italian painter. He was a pupil of
Felice Brusasorci (Ridolfi), but he soon moved to Venice, where he
studied the art of Jacopo Tintoretto in particular, but also that of
Jacopo Bassano and of Veronese, whose works he copied in chiaroscuro
drawings (mainly Windsor Castle, Royal Lib.) similar to those of
Domenico Tintoretto. Bassetti’s early painted Portrait of a Man with
a Glove (Verona, Castelvecchio) is essentially Venetian, close to
the art of Bassano; his St Peter and St Andrew (both Moruri, S
Zeno), both unrefined, rustic works, are similar in style and must
also be rare examples of his early paintings.
