FABRITIUS Barend ( Midden-Beemster 1624-Amsterdam 1673), Dutch. Grouped with the followers of Rembrandt,* Barend Fabritius is an interesting but lesser talent than his brother Carel.* Like his brother, Barend was first active as a carpenter. He probably worked briefly in Rembrandt's studio in the early 1640s but was by then already trained, perhaps by Carel. Barend's itinerant life makes a reconstruction of his career difficult.

Early on Barend divided his time between Midden-Beemster and Amsterdam (in 1641 he was recorded in Midden-Beemster; in 1643, Amsterdam). Married in 1652, he may later have moved to or visited Delft, though he was also back in Midden-Beemster intermittently (two children were born there in 1653 and 1655). He was also in Leiden in 1657 and joined the painters' guild there in 1658; he returned again to Midden- Beemster around 1661, but in 1663 he was back in Leiden working for a church. In 1665 and 1666 he was again in Midden-Beemster. He settled in Amsterdam around 1669/70.

Barend's most important paintings were histories with biblical or mythological themes; he also produced scenes of single figures, including allegorical portraits, some genre scenes, as well as simple (straightforward) portraits.

Extremely productive as a painter and draughtsman, Barend demonstrated his individual style best in such important works as St. Peter in the House of Cornelius (signed and dated 1653, Braunschweig, Herzog
