BEMBO, Benedetto
(active 1462-1489 in Cremona)

Madonna and Saints

Castello Sforzesco, Milan

This polyptych originally was the altarpiece in the chapel of the Castello di Torrechiara (Emilia-Romagna). It is a signed and dated work by Benedetto Bembo, who, together with his brother Bonifazio Bembo, decorated the Golden Room of the Castello.

The polyptych of the Venetian type, adorned with a richly carved frame, depicts the Madonna with Sts Anthony Abbot, Nicodemus, Catherine of Alexandria and Peter Martyr.
