Quick Reference

(b ?Milan, c.1460; d Milan, 1530).

Milanese painter and architect, a follower of Bramante, from whom he takes his nickname (meaning ‘little Bramante’). He was appointed court painter and architect to Duke Francesco II Sforza in 1525. His style as a painter is complex and eclectic, drawing on Piero della Francesca and Leonardo as well as Bramante; at its best it has a certain stolid dignity. Perhaps his most individual characteristic is his use of sombre classical architectural backgrounds, as in the Adoration of the Magi (c.1500, NG, London).
