Description - Bramantino: A Renaissance Painter in Milan by Giovanni Agosti
Born in Bergamo and documented since 1480, Bramantino died in Milan in 1530. His nickname derives from his relationship with Bramante, the great architect of the Sforza court. From his youthful Adoration of the Shepherds to the Saint Sebastian(1515 ca.), Bramantino is always up to date with the most innovative art, but, at the same time, developing his own style, somewhat abstract and ripe with mysterious iconographies. 'Bramantino: A Renaissance Painter in Milan', a veritable reference work on Bramantino, sets forth a new chronology, emphasising his pivotal role in Lombard Renaissance. He was indeed the only Lombard artist of the time able to stand up to Leonardo's inventions. The book also discusses the twelve tapestries known as the Trivulzio Months, described by Campbell as 'a virtuoso exercise in design and a veritable compendium of Italian Renaissance thought and iconography.', as well as the recent sensational discovery of new frescoes in the Castle of Voghera.
