BRESCIANINO, Andrea del
(b. ca. 1485, Brescia, d. ca. 1545, Firenze)
Madonna and Child with the Infant St John the Baptist-
Oil on panel, 73 x 57 cm
In this painting Brescianino sets his figures within a landscape with a distant city and mountains beyond and the skyline is broken by long, sparsely leafed trees in the middle ground, reminiscent of those by Fra Bartolomeo.
