Jacopo Bassano (ca. 1510 – 14 February 1592), known also as Jacopo dal Ponte, was an Italian painter who was born and died in Bassano del Grappa near Venice, from which he adopted the name. Trained in the workshop of his father, Francesco the Elder, and maybe in contact with the shop of Bonifazio Veronese in Venice, he painted mostly religious paintings including landscape and genre scenes . Bassano's pictures, and those of his two sons, Francesco Bassano the Younger, Giambattista Bassano the Younger, Leandro Bassano, Girolamo Bassano who followed him closely, were very popular in Venice because of their depiction of animals and nocturnal scenes. Bassano is considered to be the first modern landscape painter.
