Quick Reference

(c. 1450–before 6 Nov. 1510). Italian painter. He was born at Treviglio in Lombardy and was influenced by Mantegna, Cosimo Tura, Francesco del Cossa, and Vincenzo Foppa. He often worked in Milan and Treviglio in collaboration with Bernardo Zenale (c. 1464–1526), as in the case of the polyptych which was commissioned for the church of S. Martino at Treviglio in 1485. Two works signed by Butinone alone are known: a triptych in the Brera, Milan, dated 1484; and a Madonna and Child Enthroned with S. John the Baptist and S. Justina in the Borromeo Collection at Isola Bella.
