BERGOGNONE, Ambrogio
(b. ca. 1453, Fossano, d. 1523, Milano)

Lamentation of Christ

c. 1485
Tempera and oil on panel, 65 x 49 cm
Szépmûvészeti Múzeum, Budapest

The intersection of styles characterizes this small panel, in which Northern elements traceable to Rogier van der Weyden are conspicuously present, but so are certain Vincenzo Foppa influences, mainly in the physiognomy of some figures in the middleground, in the facial types and some solutions in the drawing that were to remain unaltered in Bergognone's works of subsequent years.
