Bassen, Barthold Van

Barthold van Bassen was a practitioner of perspective specializing in church interiors such as the Interior of a Gothic Church (London, National Gallery, 1638) and Interior of a Church, said to be falsely signed by P. Neefs (London, National Gallery, 164). He also painted secular interiors in perspective (Interieur mit vornehmer Gesellschaft, Berlin, Gemдldegalerie, Kat. Nr. 755). Schneede (1965) and Ballegeer (1967) examined his work in relation to Vredeman de Vries.
