LUINI, Bernardino
(b. 1480, Luino, d. 1532, Milano)

Madonna with Child and the Young St John

c. 1515
Oil on panel, 83 x 66 cm

This composition is a Madonna dell'Umiltà, in which Luini combined Leonardo da Vinci's innovations with the Milanese tradition. Leonardo's influence is revealed by the use of sfumato as stylistic device.
