Barent or Bernard Pietersz Fabritius (or Fabricius) (November 16, 1624 (bapt.) - October 20, 1673 (buried)), was a Dutch painter.

Fabritius was born at Middenbeemster, North Holland, the son of Pieter Carelsz. Fabritius. He studied with his brothers Johannes and Carel Fabritius, and probably with Rembrandt as well. He was a painter of biblical subjects (The three angels before Abraham, The presentation in the temple), mythical and historical scenes, in addition to expressive portraits. He died in Amsterdam.
