Jacopo dal Ponte, 1510-1592, was an Italian painter of mostly landscapes and genre scenes. The artist is considered to be the first modern landscape painter and one of the first artists to paint a "nocturne", or an oil painting in a nighttime landscape with artificial lighting. This type of painting was extremely popular with local audiences and made Jacopo Bassano paintings highly valued. His artworks also began to feature more heavily the pastoral elements. He show religious scenes not in Classical Roman settings, but in natural landscape of trees and flowers. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
