Luini, Bernardino

Luini, Bernardino
born с 1480/85
died 1532, Milan

Italian painter active in Milan.

Little is known of his life. His earliest surviving works are a polyptych in a church near Como (с 1510) and a fresco, Madonna and Child (1512), at the Cistercian monastery of Chiravalle, near Milan. Working in the Renaissance style, he was a prominent follower of Leonardo da Vinci in Lombardy; many of Luini's frescoes and altarpieces are in Lombardy churches. He also painted mythological subjects, most notably a Europa and a Cephalus and Procris (с 1520), originally for a Milanese palace.

▪ Italian painter
born c. 1485
died 1532, Milan

      Renaissance painter of Lombardy, best known for his mythological and religious frescoes.

      Little is known of Luini's life; the earliest surviving painting that is certainly his work is a fresco (1512) of the “Madonna and Child” at the Cistercian monastery of Chiaravalle, near Milan. It shows the dependence upon the style of the Lombardian painter Bergognone (c. 1455–after 1522), which Luini retained throughout his life. The majority of his panel paintings have religious subjects. His paintings also show the influence of other masters operating in the Lombardy area, such as Bramantino, Bernardino Zenale, and Leonardo da Vinci.

      Luini was influenced by Leonardo (Leonardo da Vinci) during the latter's second stay in Milan (1506–13), as is seen in the facial types and the composition of Luini's “Holy Family” (Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, Milan). Of his frescoes, many of which are now detached and dispersed, the most notable are the “Story of Europa” (c. 1520; Berlin) and the “Story of Cephalus and Procris” (c. 1520; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.) from either the Casa Rabia or the Villa Pelucca (both in Milan) and the “Story of Moses” and various mythological subjects from the Villa Pelucca (Brera, Milan).
